The first class is for people only. This is a basic manners course that shows you how to teach your dog the essential skills needed to succeed in everyday life. We will cover the following:

  • Getting and keeping your dog’s attention

  • Sit

  • Come
  • Leave it
  • Not jumping on people

The manners covered in this course are a prerequisite for other classes or activities you may plan to do with your dog in the future.
