Basic Manners

Basic Good Manners for Your Dog


This class is offered to dogs and puppies over 9 months of age who have not taken our Polite Puppy Class (or equivalent) or those that need a refresher.

You will learn how to teach your dog the basic obedience commands such as Sit, Down, Stand, Stay, Give, Leave It, Wait at doorways and to Come when called. They will also learn thier names, learn to give you their attention, how to settle on a mat, and how to walk on a loose leash.

We will also address problem behaviors you might be experiencing. Topics depend on the needs and interests of the students..

All members of your dog's family are encouraged to attend these classes.

We look forward to having you and your dog join our Basic Manners Class!
