Manners Classes

Just Say Please 1 - Getting started! $150.00

This 6-week course is for dogs of all ages who need a start in basic manners. During this class your dog will learn how to "say please" to ask for what he wants (instead of jumping up, barking, etc.). From 10 week old puppies to 10 year old dogs this program will help you get the companion you want. We introduce the five basics that all dogs need to learn: sit, down, stay, coming when called and walking on a loose leash. Focus is on teaching the dog to control his actions so we also work on teaching him to wait at the door, leave things alone when told and sit instead of jumping on people. We will help you learn how to set your dog up for success so that you and your dog will have a good time learning together. Problem behaviors are also addressed (including digging, chewing, house training). First class is without dogs to give you a head start!
