Basic Manners

Build a strong training foundation

For the health and safety of all participants, all training classes will be held outdoors and all participants are required to wear a face mask. Should federal, state, or county guidelines change and prohibit us from continuing in-person classes, we will complete the class online. Thank you for your understanding.

This class is a 6-week course for dogs 6 months and older to help you develop a smooth and reliable working relationship with your dog indoors as well as outdoors. Throughout this course we are going to teach the following:

Basic Training Principals (how to become a great handler),
Body Positions (Sit, Down, Stand), 
Come to Me, 
Take-, Drop and Leave It, 
Heel and Loose Leash Walking, 
Polite Greetings and No Greetings (and how to prevent leash reactivity), 
Dog Park Etiquette, 
Introduction to Stay, 
Introduction to Targeting.

In addition to the exercises, the curriculum also includes in-home canine enrichment ideas, games and techniques to increase your dog’s confidence (preventing separation anxiety), in preparation for returning to normal life following COVID-19 restrictions. Upon completion, your dog will be eligible to move on to Advanced Manners.
