Advanced Dog Manners

Our advanced dog manners class is the next step after graduating from our intermediate Manners II class.  This course aims to polish your dog’s skills and prepare him to pass the Canine Good Citizen test*!

Each class is structured around teaching you and your pup the skills necessary to handle different real-life challenges with grace and ease.  In addition to building known behaviors to be performed at further distances, for longer durations and with greater distractions, we’ll also introduce the new advance cue of drop on recall. We aim to make good manners your dog’s default behavior that become second nature, so your dog can claim the title of “Canine Good Citizen!”

*Harmonious Hounds does not administer the Canine Good Citizen test.  This class prepares you to take the examination elsewhere.  We will refer you to testing locations upon completion of the class.
