Is your dog jumping on guests? Counter surfing? Not coming when called? Pulling on the leash? Then you are in the right place!
Is your dog pulling on leash? Are they jumping all over your guests? Do you struggle getting them to come when called? Then our Manners class is the perfect fit! In this class your instructor will coach you through skills such as loose leash walking, calming waiting, polite greeting, sit and down stay, and more. Teaching your dog what to do will provide more compliance and less frustration for you both. This is a 6-week class that meets for one hour each week. It is designed for dogs 12 months and older (or graduates from Puppy or Adolescent Pup class). Students with newly adopted dogs who are new to training or dogs who need to brush up on their manners are a great fit to attend this class. *Dogs should be people and dog friendly.

Connection, Cooperation & Control™
The Connection, Cooperation & Control (CCC)™ training system can help you create the kind of connection and cooperation you want with your dog. Firmly founded on the principles of Suzanne Clothier’s Relationship Centered Training™, the CCC training system helps you create a mutual connection with your dog, while you also develop cheerful cooperation.
Dog training generally focuses on teaching dogs specific behaviors, but forgets to include the relationship, communication, and connection. Without those key ingredients, you end up with a dog who knows “stuff” like SIT, DOWN, STAY but still drags you here and there, tuning you out and sometimes just disconnecting. Sound familiar?
Distraction is a common problem for pet owners and professional dog trainers. The CCC training system bridges the gap between training at home and in public places to keep the dog engaged and cooperative while the rest of the world happens around him.
These are single 1-hour sessions or 4-week classes focused on a specific skill. A great option for dogs who have basic skills and need to fine-tune and/or practice one area of their training. Topics include but are not limited to loose leash walking, relaxation, coming when called, and polite greeting.
Single 1-hour session fee: $35
4-week class: $140
*Dogs MUST be comfortable around other dogs and new people. Basic manners are also required.
