Advanced Manners & Obedience Class

Our group classes function a little differently than most, in that all classes run on a rotating schedule so that you can join in whenever you like! All of our classes are served “a-la-carte” style, at $30 per session, you are not required to purchase a certain amount of sessions in advance. This puts you in full control of what your dog learns, and what is important to you, without hurting your pocketbook. Our Advanced Manners & Obedience Class is appropriate for dogs who have completed the foundational curriculums in Puppy and/or Adult class or a similar course.

The purpose of this course is to create reliable skills and appropriate behavior in high-distraction environments. This class is a preparatory course for the Canine Good Citizen examination and provides a framework for Therapy Work.

This course is open to new clients and is a great next step for those who have completed the Adult Class Curriculum. Sessions are held Tuesdays at 6:00pm. Pre-enrollment is required to attend class, and enrollment closes 24 prior to the start time of each session. Unlike our basic courses, this class curriculum is highly individualized, and does not have a pre-set rotation of topics.
