Graduates of Basic Manners Class
This class is all about teaching your dog to “mind his own business” about town.
We take your dog’s manners on the road to practice listening to you — no matter where you are, walking without pulling, not getting into food crumbs or garbage, coming when called, saying hello to people politely, meeting other dogs nicely, and focused manners all about town.
Being Calm & and minding his/her own business.
Listening to You: Paying attention — at a park, shopping complex, coffee shop or just relaxing walks in the neighborhood; coming when called in the presence of other dogs, not picking food crumbs or garbage; and dropping items on cue.
Self Control: Not jumping on strangers on walks; polite greeting; “leave-it” & “drop-it” when out and about.
Public Manners: Walking nicely on a leash, settling down calmly while you have coffee or have dinner at a restaurant.
We’ll meet in a new location each week—shopping districts, cafes, pet supply stores, parks, etc. Enjoy socializing with fellow students while working with your dog in the real world, supported by your training instructor-cum-tour director.
