Canine Manners Matter

Canine Manners Matter


Whether your dog training goals are big or small—polite walking, greeting guests politely, coming when called, confidence building, or other foundation behavior—this series empowers you with proven solutions. You will learn how to effectively, and positively communicate with your dog using clicker training, while extinguishing undesirable behaviors in a positive way. We also integrate fun tricks and enriching games. Our small class size of just 3-4 dog/owner teams, enables us to better tailor sessions to your individual training goals.
