Advanced Manners

**For the health and safety of all participants, this class will take place outdoors. Thank you for your understanding.***

Who should take this class?

  • Graduates of Puppy or Basic Manners who want to continue to develop a stronger relationship with their dog
  • Dogs who have learned basic manners but struggle to focus in stimulating environments 
  • Handlers who eventually want to work with their dogs off-leash

What will you learn?

We will use “conversational” training to build a solid foundation of life skills. Default behaviors give your dog a repertoire of socially acceptable methods of engaging with you and others. Pattern games help your dog translate unfamiliar or overstimulating environments into a familiar, predictable framework that allows them to process the environment while remaining engaged and able to focus. Through the program you will learn how to understand and empower your dog, and your dog will learn to make good behavioral choices.

How does it work?

This 6-week class will incorporate online tutorials of the concepts to be used during the outdoor classes at Canine Humane Network. Participants will be assigned new skills to work on each week at home before applying those skills in a group class setting. We will meet outside at CHN on Saturdays for class.  

Upon completion of this class, you will be eligible for Control Unleashed in the Great Outdoors.
