Family Manners

Our companion dog classes teach the life skills your dog needs to thrive in your home and in public. From basic behaviors like sit, down, stay, and come, to more advanced abilities aimed at off-leash control, these courses will strengthen the communication and relationship between handler and dog. Please note, this class begins with a human-only orientation. Not suitable for reactive dogs.

Family Manners 202 builds on what dogs learned in Family Manners 101 by testing their mastery of the basics while teaching them new skills for everyday life. In addition to more advanced recalls from farther distances, we work on having dogs go to their “place” as well as polite greetings with both people and other dogs. This class also introduces you and your dog to the exciting world of off-leash training! Pre-requisite: completion of Family Manners 101 class or other basic manners course.
