Foundation Basic Manners

The Foundation class helps dogs and owners build a training tools help them navigate through every day life in a calm, confident and happy manner. Each dog has its own space in the studio so they can feel comfortable and safe.

Our classes are small so dogs don't get overwhelmed and each owner/dog can get personal attention through out the class.

The manners/skills we work on include sit, stay until released, down, walk nicely on leash, sit politely at a door, settle and be calm on a mat or dog bed, greet people politely, come when called and more.

We have open enrollment so students can start their 6 consecutive weeks at anytime we have availability and the human of the dog/human team has attended a free 30 min orientation. Class fee is $125 for the 6 week class (1 class once a week consecutively for 6 weeks). We have now added 4 or 5 week classes. These are noted on enrollment links. Those class costs have been adjusted to reflect the number of classes per session. Please consider your schedule carefully as no refunds will be given after the start of your class.
