Foundation Basic Manners

We have on-line class options! The Foundation class helps dogs and owners build a training tool kit to 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 20 mins orientation. Class fee is $110 for the 6 week class (1 class a week consecutively for 6 weeks). OR we offer an on-line option for $60 for the 6 classes or $10 per class (you do not have to sign up for all 6 if you prefer not to).

Classes: Tuesday 1:30-2:30pm ,Tuesday7:30-8:30 pm, Thursday 6:15-7:15 pm
