Basic Manners Class

Puppies older than 17 weeks, adolescent and adult dogs

Our class teaches your puppy the basics of living in the human world with grace and charm. Using real-life scenarios, your puppy will learn:

To Listen to You: Paying attention no matter where you are, coming when called, and dropping items on cue.

Self Control: Not jumping on guests and strangers; polite sits for greeting; down stays so you can get some email answered, cook dinner, enjoy a visit from a friend; and not surfing the counters;

Public Manners: Walking nicely on leash, settling down calmly while you shop, “leave it” when out and about, and greeting dogs politely.

Body Handling and Grooming: Teaching the puppy to be comfortable being groomed, handled, and restrained — all of which are extremely important for vet visits and day-to-day hygiene.

What Our Clients Say

“I took several classes with D For Dog and loved all of them. I really enjoyed that many of the classes were held in different locations around town so your pup gets to practice the skills in the real world.”

Kelly L, Mom of River & Kaylee, Pitbull puppie

“The one thing that sets Kaajal apart from other trainers is that she uses Positive reinforcement methods and is remarkably good at training humans in how they connect with their puppy as that sets the right foundation.”

Mikkin P, Dad of Munchkin, a Labradoodle Puppy
