Obedience & Manners
Our adult dog classes are designed to create an obedient companion that’s a joy to live with and an integral member of your family as well as a Canine Good Citizen®. We gear our Pet Manners classes to help you train your dog to pass the AKC Canine Good Citizenship (CGC) Test. If your dog is weak in one area (recalls, stays, etc.) we offer shorter topics classes that teach individual skills in specific problem areas. These are periodically offered as one or two session workshops as well as topic classes throughout the year.
