Manners Classes

Manners classes teach social skills and cross-species communication so people and dogs are able to enjoy spending time together. Dogs are living beings who thrive on social interaction and require human attention to be well-adjusted. Manners is a relaxed, game-based way for your dog to learn to be successful in a family home.

Refund request or class change must provide at least one week notice to be accommodated. Read Dog Training Policies and contact us with questions.
