Basic Manners, Behaviors, and Relationships Class

Our Basic Manners, Behaviors, and Relationships class sets dogs of all ages out on the path of not only developing a solid set of aptitude and personal skills but also builds a love of learning based on positive reinforcement training methods.

Taught by Lisa Edwards, CDPT-KA, CDBC, students are presented with both a fun and stimulating environment that helps them learn the basic skills to not only be better dogs but also better members of your family.

Basic Class Guidelines:

  • Each class is six weeks long, meeting on a weekly basis at the same time and location. The first week is just for humans and then dogs attend all the rest of the classes with their handlers.
  • Each weekly class is an hour long.
  • The class is intended for dogs from eight weeks and up. We have had dogs as old as seven years in the class — it’s never too late to start. Proof of vaccination is required prior to the beginning of the first class with dogs.
  • Because class size is limited, once you have enrolled and a spot has been reserved for you we cannot offer refunds.
    • However, if you miss one of the dates in a series, it can be made up in a subsequent class.
