Good manners and basic life skills make living with our dogs easier, safer, and much more fun. Whether your dog is new to training, needs some refreshing, or you have a new dog, this class teaches you how to train the basics that all dogs need, like sit, down, stay, come when called, leash manners, impulse control, and more. By teaching you how to integrate training into your everyday life, busy schedules won't keep you from training your dog. We will also teach you how to get (and keep) your dog’s attention on you, build solid name recognition, polite greetings, and how to avoid or stop jumping, pulling, barking, chewing on your stuff, and other very normal dog behaviors that are inappropriate in the human home and in the neighborhood.
Attendance required at the first class and dogs DO NOT attend. This is an orientation class. You will receive reading material and easy, but important training exercises to take home and start right away with your dog.
