MANNERS Training Class
Our beginner level manners training class is the next step after graduating from Puppy Headstart or for the novice dog. It is focused on instilling basic manners in dogs of all ages and sizes! In addition to teaching your dog household manners, you will learn more about canine behavior and how to solve common behavior problems.
Each class focuses on teaching you and your pup the skills to handle a different real-life situation with grace and ease. We focus on building concrete impulse control for your dog – what keeps him from jumping on every person or other dog he meets – and teaching you how to train behaviors relevant to your everyday life. Our aim is to build mainstay polite behaviors as habit for your dog using the science of how dogs learn and reward-based reinforcement. Of course, expect plenty of socialization and fun to boot!
Enrollment is flexible, with options to pay per session or purchase a package. This class is “open enrollment,” which means it is structured in a manner that allows you to join the class at any time. The class is constantly cycling, so no matter when you join, you will get the opportunity to take all 6 sessions!
