Good Dog Manners Classes

See Upcoming Dates & Times for Each Class Below!

Our Good Dog Manners Program is a multi-tiered, ongoing obedience program offering the ultimate in flexibility and designed for the busy owner. Each class  introduces new and more complex skills for both dogs and owners, including sit, stay, loose leash walking, polite greetings, and more! Dogs and owners move through the different levels of training as they demonstrate proficiency of specific skill requirements, eventually moving up through the Canine Good Citizen certification.  With this program, our flexible schedule allows for you and your pup to attend the classes on different days and times – allowing them to learn at their own pace so they can spend time focusing on areas where they need the most help. This class is for dogs 4 months and older.  See list of upcoming classes below!
