This class is for the dogs that are no longer puppies but have turned into young adolescents.  We run into different issues during this time period and want to spend time with those issues.  

This class is not for the dog that is aggressive.  Reactive dogs, depending on the intensity may be allowed in class.  Aggressive dogs will not be allowed in the class.


Manners and Etiquette 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:
