Basic Manners

This 5-week program is for dogs that are 5 months and older with little to no training or for those wanting to learn how to train their dog using positive reinforcement.

You will learn how to:

  • Teach your dog basic household manners
  • Help you determine what motivates your dog and how to use that to quickly and effectively train the behaviors you want
  • Teach problem solving for both you and your dog
  • Build reliability around distractions such as other dogs, people, noises
  • Manage common issues such as barking and jumping

Your dog will learn behaviors such as sit, down, stay, come, watch, wait at doors, greet people nicely, leave forbidden items, walk on a loose leash, and drop items when asked. The goal is to have a well-mannered dog at home and when out in public.
