Start your dog out on the right paw!
Beginning Manners & Obedience for Dogs is the perfect first training class for your new canine companion. Our goal is to provide a safe and fun learning environment that will provide you with the knowledge and skills you need to successfully work with your dog to get the kind of behavior you like, both at home and out in the real world.
We’ll start by spending time in the classroom setting down the fundamentals and then we’ll begin to take them on the road with increasingly more complicated real life challenges so that you can learn how to get your dog to work with you wherever you happen to be.
We’ll also help you work through the basics of bringing a new dog you’re your home. We’ll talk about housetraining issues and “naughty” behaviors like chewing inappropriate items. We’ll help you learn how to teach your dog to be comfortable when left alone so they aren't to stressed and make the right decisions when you are away!
Our Beginning and Intermediate Manners & Obedience for Dogs classes are a complete training track for canines who are beginning their obedience training as young adults or adults.
Beginning Manners and Obedience for Dogs is 6 consecutive weeks long unless skip dates are noted below. Each session is on the same day and time each week that the class began (Tuesday 6:15 start date will always meet Tuesdays at 6:15 ) and class lasts approximately 50 minutes. The first class session is "Humans Only", owners should attend the first class without their dog and attend classes 2 thru 6 with their dogs.
This class is for dogs 5 months and older! Feel free to enroll your senior companion because old dogs really can learn new tricks! You will be required to provide proof of current, age appropriate vaccinations. **The Canine Influenza Virus has recently reached the Bay Area. Please read through our Vaccinations and Behavioral & Health Appropriateness sections of our Group Dog Class Rules and Policies for more information!
