Everyone has seen the dog who behaves in their home but struggles out in the real world when they see another person, dog or squirrel! Using safe, positive, on- and off-leash handling, we’ll help you maintain control of your pup. This class shows you how to keep your dog focused and in control even the most highly distracting environments. You’ll learn how to motivate your dog to be excited to work with you in all situations! It’s the difference between having a dog who only listens when you have a treat or force them and having a dog who can’t wait for you to give them a command.

Appropriate for age: 6 months+

Prerequisites: Current distemper and rabies vaccinations required. Vaccination history must be presented to trainer at orientation. Bordetella and Canine Influenza vaccinations are recommended but not required. You must be able to attend ALL classes and also have access to a computer, Zoom and email.

Basic Manners is not for dogs who are extremely dog reactive, lunging and growling at other dogs (Please see Reactive Rover). Dogs who are reactive or have bitten are not appropriate for any group class, and should look into individual training; refer to our website for more info. If you enroll in Basic Manners, and your dog must be removed for being reactive, we regret we cannot refund your fee.

Behaviors covered: Sit | Down | Watch | Come | Stay | Leave it | Loose-leash walking | Anti-jumping | Wait
