GOOD MANNERS class is for dogs 5 months and older at the start of class.

Classes consist of 6 weekly sessions, each lasting about 50 minutes. Topics to be covered will include, but are not limited to:

  • Understanding canine behavior and communication
  • Basic manners: sit, down, come, stay, loose leash walking
  • How positive reinforcement works and why we use it
  • Problem solving
  • Problem prevention
  • Training tricks for fun and to impress your friends!

The first week of Good Manners is orientation only - dogs do not attend the first week of class.
