Do you have a dog that needs help with manners and obedience? This class will teach you some skills to motivate your dog and help improve his focus. You will learn to teach your dog a variety of behaviors (sit, down, stay, settle, come, leave it, leash manners, go to the mat and more). With clear communication and positive reinforcement, you and your dog will build a strong bond and enjoy the training process. You will work on these behaviors in a group of other dogs, so this setting won’t be appropriate for dogs who are leash aggressive.
