- Name recognition
- Leave it
- Not jumping on people
- Keeping your dog’s attention and maintaining good behaviors even when you are not carrying food or other motivators and rewards
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. The first class is for people only.
