Intermediate Manners, Behaviors, and Relationships Class


Our Intermediate Manners, Behaviors, and Relationships class continues dogs along the path of expanding and proofing their set of aptitude and personal skills in a fun and rewarding atmosphere based on positive reinforcement training methods.
