Adult Dog Manners / Obedience Training Classes


 Return to Manners Classes

Our Adult Manners dog training course teaches fundamental skills, listening, and self-control across a number of different behaviors. This is important because as your dog gets older, its desire to listen decreases, making daily interaction such as walks more challenging.

The course includes:
  • Training skills.  The course teaches skills such as

    • Walking without pulling
    • Focusing on you
    • Coming directly to you
    • Waiting patiently before a command is given
    • Not jumping on people
    • Leaving items alone
    • Dropping an item
    • And more

  • Class discussion. A full discussion of important training topics such as:

    • How and why dogs learn
    • The importance and use of positive reinforcement
    • Each component of the reward process
    • Games and exercises you can start to work on with your dog
    • How to successfully use your voice, posture, body language, and more
    • Training equipment and rewards that we recommend
    • And more

  • Access to TrainTrack™. Our proprietary online tool for supplementing your training instruction, that includes:
    • Videos of all the exercises taught in class
    • Written descriptions of all the exercises taught in class
    • The homework for each session
    • Ability to log your exercises and keep track of what you need to work on next
    • Bonus materials

  • Equipment. To help ensure you are as successful as possible
    • Treat pouch

You will be amazed at what your dog can accomplish in only six weeks!
