You'll learn the best way to communicate with your individual dog and how to deliver rewards with good placement and timing for maximum learning impact. We'll also talk about how to "read" dog body language, stop unwanted behaviors and how to recognize and promote healthy play between dogs.

Each session will introduce multiple exercises revolving around a theme, including:

  • Recalls out of dog-dog play & around other distractions

  • Stays, Impulse Control & good “door” manners

  • Building confidence, attention & focus

  • Walking politely on leash in a challenging world

  • Play, games & exercise for better manners


Class requirements: Permission of instructor. This class is for pups & adolescents under 1 year of age that have attended the basic Puppy 1 class. Space is limited, so register early to guarantee your space! All pups must be current on vaccinations.
