4-Adolescent-Adult Dog 1 The Foundation

Course Details

  • 6 week course (includes orientation)
  • Adolescent 6m+ - Adult dogs (class size up to 6 dogs)
  • Small dogs are welcome to join the puppy classes if owner prefers.
  • Cost $115

Due to time constraints, we are combining the Adolescent dogs with the adults dogs in Manners & Etiquette I.  Once we have more time slots to work with, we will split these two age groups up again. We will have a smaller dog join a puppy class if they are over 6 months of age.  This depends on the dogs social skills with other dogs.


Adolescent-Adult Dog I class has orientation the first night. Your dog stays home for the orientation.  This gives you the opportunity to meet us and get answers to the questions you have.  The orientation is approximately 1.5 hours.  We require that you bring your dogs vaccine record.  Credit card, cash and check are accepted at this time.  We will introduce you to our training methods plus:
  • What is needed for class
  • Learning Theory - how dogs learn by operant and classical conditioning (associations).
  • Reinforcements - What they are and how to use them.
  • Problem Prevention
  • Jumping
  • Nipping, biting and chewing
  • Cue System
  • You will be taught a couple exercises to take home and teach your dog.
