How many dogs are in the class?
The maximum number of dogs in a Basic Manners class is 6.
My dog hates/is afraid of/barks, growls, or lunges at other dogs/people. Can we join class?
No. Not only will these issues not be improved by Basic Manners class, but if your dog is upset around other dogs or people, putting them in an enclosed space with a bunch of them would be sort of like throwing them into the pool without teaching them to swim first. We would be happy to “teach them to swim” in private lessons, and then you can join the class, when your dog has the coping skills to handle it!
What is covered in Basic Manners class?
Can my kids/spouse/parents/petsitter attend class?
Yes, absolutely! The more the merrier. School-aged kids do best in Basic Manners class; toddlers and pre-schoolers find it boring and get restless and irritated. Even school-aged kids might want to bring something to do if they get bored. Older kids make GREAT dog trainers. Bring the whole family, because if everyone is on the same page, your dog training will go much faster and smoother!
