Pet Manners Classes
For dogs 12 months+
All dogs deserve to learn life skills. Just because your dog is no longer a puppy, doesn't mean they shouldn't get to enjoy classes! These classes are for dogs who are over 12 months of age and who wish to start or continue their education.
Please note: this is not a class for dogs displaying any aggression or reactivity to either humans or dogs. Please contact us if you are unsure if this class is the right fit for your dog.

Level 2 builds on the skills taught in Level 1. In this level, we will challenge our dogs by showing them how to maintain their skills under distraction to make their skills more reliable in real life settings. We also introduce new concepts like stand and heeling. This level includes:
Basic commands: adding auto sits when you stop moving, introducing a stand and heel command, holding stays for longer periods of time, intro
Manners: loose leash walking with real world distractions
Relaxation: sending to bed from a longer distance and staying there longer
Recalls: coming when called under higher distractions, such as through toys and by other dogs
Happy handling: learning to also accept handling from the instructor, similar to going to the vet
This class will also introduce a few fun dog tricks for you to impress your friends with!
