Dog learning basic mannersAppropriate for age: 6 months+

Prerequisites: Current distemper and rabies vaccinations required. Vaccination history must be presented to trainer at first class. Bordetella and Canine Influenza vaccinations are recommended but not required.

Fee: $159 (6-week class)

Everyone has seen the dog who behaves in their home but struggles out in the real world when they see another person, dog or squirrel! Using safe, positive, on- and off-leash handling, we’ll help you maintain control of your pup. This class shows you how to keep your dog focused and in control even the most highly distracting environments. You’ll learn how to motivate your dog to be excited to work with you in all situations! It’s the difference between having a dog who only listens when you have a treat or force them and having a dog who can’t wait for you to give them a command.

Basic Manners is not for dogs that are extremely dog reactive, lunging and growling at other dogs. Please see Reactive Rover.

Behaviors covered: Sit | Down | Watch | Come | Stay | Leave it | Loose-leash walking | Anti-jumping | Wait

This class is offered on Mondays at 6:30pm with Angela and Lowell and Sundays at 7:30pm with Angela and Lowell.
