This class is for dogs of all ages!  In Basic 101, we focus on sit, down, come, stay, leave it, leash manners, greeting manners, and more.

**Please note:  this is not a class for reactive dogs.  If your dog is reactive (frequently barks and lunges at) to people or other dogs, please call or email to discuss whether this class is the best option, or if a behavior consult might be more appropriate and effective.  We offer group classes that are specifically for reactive dogs, and private lessons as well, so there is sure to be an option that works for you!  (Reactive dogs are good dogs … they simply need a more structured environment to set them up for success!)  If you are not sure whether this class is a good fit for your dog, just give us a call before registering and we can help you find the right training option!

If you haven’t already guessed, in this workshop we will focus on teaching our dogs to walk politely on leash. We will work inside and outside, and will learn to teach our dog to walk nicely even when faced with distractions.

Dogs who are well-behaved on-leash get to go many more places and have more adventures. And walks with a trained dog become a breeze, not a chore. This class will help you and your dog get more enjoyment out of life – and each other!

  •  Check back with us in the Fall for new sections of this outdoor class.

Greeting Manners Clinic – $100

Does your dog lose their mind from excitement whenever someone comes over? Do they jump all over your guests, embarrassing you? When you walk through the room, does he leap up to see what is in your hands? When you come home, does he knock you over with happiness? When you and your dog greet strangers while on a walk, does he launch up to greet them?

In this workshop, you will learn how to teach your dog some “greeting etiquette”! We will work on door manners, sit for greeting, waiting to say hello until given permission, and more!

Come learn how to help Fido blossom from a wild child to a canine ambassador!
