Family Dog – Basic Manners
Family Dog Basic Manners teaches dogs how to be polite family pets. Dogs learn important and practical life skills such as how to walk politely on a loose lead, come quickly when called, lay quietly on a dog bed when company arrives, not bark at a doorbell, stay around distractions and leave food on the countertops. This class is a wonderful way to introduce dogs to important training skills using force-free training techniques.
