Tired of feeling like you’re at the other end of a dog sled team? Want to be able to take your dog to the farmers market without them jumping all over everyone? Need to figure out how to get your dog to come when you really need him to? Manners 1 is the class for you! For dogs 4 months and older, this class will help you and your dog work as a team to conquer the big struggles of having an adolescent dog. We'll use positive reinforcement to practice coming when called, polite greetings (not jumping), leash walking, sit/down/stand, stay, mat training and attention training.  Class meets for six weeks, first week without dogs. For non-reactive dogs only. Again, first class is people only, no dogs.
