Wouldn’t it be nice if your dog walked on the lead without pulling, sat for a pat from visitors instead of jumping up, and behaved well around food, other people, and dogs?

This course is a great for all young dogs. If you’ve been to my puppy class, you’re puppy has already started to learn basic good manners and how to be polite and social. But to get your dog comfortable in all kinds of situations, you need to practice in many different environments and with increasing distractions. In this class, we will work on:

  • Sit, Down, Wait

  • Loose-lead walking, including walking past other dogs

  • Come when called

  • Accepting friendly strangers / greeting people politely

  • How to leave things alone when asked

  • Impulse control

  • Focus

  • Food manners

Not suitable for dogs highly reactive to other dogs or humans.
