It's A Dog's World Training

Manners Foundation

Start out on the right “paw”! Manners Foundation helps you teach your dog important life skills like impulse control, focus, polite leash walking, coming when called, down, stay, and more. You’ll learn how to communicate effectively with your dog to achieve superior training results and forge a strong relationship with your dog. This class is an excellent foundation for both pet and performance dogs (agility, competition obedience, etc.). Dogs and handlers will repeat the Manners Foundation level class until they attain all the needed skills to continue on to more advanced classes. Please plan to spend at least ten minutes daily practicing outside of class. Manners Foundation is a 55-minute class that meets once a week at a set day and time for seven consecutive weeks (occasional skip weeks may apply during holidays, extreme weather, or special events). Appropriate for dogs and puppies of all ages (preschool ALSO recommended for puppies 8-14 weeks of age).

Please note that the first class is an orientation session for you to attend without your
dog. Max of 8 dogs per class; Tuition: $230 for 7 weeks.
