Dog Life Skills
Full 6-week session $100 - REGISTER HERE

The class that is perfect for ALL dogs! This class is all about teaching your canine to successfully navigate the human world. We will focus on relationship building through positive reinforcement and clicker training, spending time on basic skills and manners like sit, down and stay but also a large focus on loose-leashing walking, impulse control, come and settle. One of the most important features of this class is learning to understand and read canine communication & body language. This class will equip you (and your canine) with the skills to take the Canine Good Citizen test (AKC) and prepare you for the Therapy Dog class.
