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:
- How dogs learn and the basics of marker (aka clicker) training
- Getting and keeping your dog’s attention
- 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 and activities you may wish to do with your dog in the future. The first class is for people only.
