Family Dog class is a seven-week course with the goal of teaching your dog the fundamentals of obedience, to help him or her become a pleasant member of your family and community. We use our positive approach and clicker training to help you teach your dog the basic behaviors: sit and down, stay, come, and walk calmly on leash, as well as sit at your side after coming to you. Much attention is given to teaching dogs self-control, and especially to control themselves when greeting humans, resulting in a polite dog who sits when meeting folks.
First week of class: NO DOGS. You will have plenty to do without them and can learn a lot without their being there. There will be homework!
