For dogs 4 months and older; first class is orientation without your dog.Real world manners and obedience offers you all the essentials to get your training started on the right paw with your dog! Utilizing the lure-and-reward method, you and your dog will learn how to apply behaviors such as sit, down, wait/stay, leave it, focus/watch, go to your mat, and loose leash walking. Real life set-ups like a café environment; a comfy living room; guests knocking on the door; or a veterinary clinic waiting room, will give you the tools to respond when you’re out there in the real world with your dog. Recognize how to prevent and manage behaviors such as, jumping up on guests, leash reactivity, destructive chewing, counter surfing, and excessive barking to name a few. Learn what motivates your dog and how to use it to train for the behaviors you want. This fun, on-leash class is for dogs with no previous training experience or for dogs needing a real world manners refresher. Pet guardians must show proof of current vaccinations prior to the first class.
