Many of us simply want a well-behaved, well-mannered dog that we can take for a walk and “hang out” with. Our Basic Manners class focuses on teaching everyday manners – such as loose leash walking and coming when called – by teaching you how to use good timing and rewards and have your dog love you for it! This class is perfect for anyone who wants to get their dog off on the right paw!
Included in this program is a 30min private one on one meeting with you and your dog prior to classes starting. This allows us to discuss your dog’s specific needs.
We cover the following:
- Managing dogs around other dogs
- Reading canine body language
- Discovering how dogs learn
- Environmental enrichment for your dog
- How to prevent problem behaviors
- Name recognition
- Follow my hand
- Settle on mat
- Collar touches
- Walk calmly on a loose lead
- Leave It
Suitable for puppies over 18 weeks, puppies who have completed Puppy Start Right Preschool, rescue dogs and dogs of any age that have not completed any basic training.
