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, and more.
  • Off-leash socialization:  Each class also includes play time, where the dogs get to run and play with the others off leash. This is important for building their socialization and confidence. The trainer will give you advice about what to allow and watch for during play, and how to correct your dog's behavior in an effective manner.
  • Class discussion: A full discussion of important training topics such as:

    • How and why dogs learn
    • The importance and use of positive reinforcement
    • How many people unintentionally create unwanted behaviors in their dog
    • How to successfully use your voice, posture, body language, and more
    • Corrective techniques that work
    • Training equipment and rewards that we recommend
    • And much more
  • Access to TrainTrack™
    • The homework for each session
    • Videos of all the exercises taught in class
    • Written descriptions of all the exercises taught in class
    • Ability to log your exercises and keep track of what you need to work on next
    • Bonus materials

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

Manners Class Graduation Day (2:21)

I've been a customer of Tucker Pup's for 4+ years with my 3 dogs and always had the best experience due to the high level of expertise their daycare, boarding and grooming staff hold and the exceptional communication they employ; however, I only recently used their dog training services. No surprise, I was completely impressed with my experience here as well.

The real goal of going to dog training is for the owner to acquire the skills to train their dog, a process that continues out of the classroom, not just to train your dog throughout a 6 week class period. David, was an **incredible** instructor. He immediately corrected all of things I couldn't see that I was doing which were inhibiting me from successfully training my dog. Moreover, he checked in with us every week to see make sure we were making the progress we needed to and made himself available by email and his personal cell phone when we were not. I emailed David about a couple of issues I was having between classes and he came back with clear, concise steps to resolve each of them.

I cannot recommend David and the Tucker Pups training class enough. My dog saw immediate results and I have acquired the skills to continue making progress with his training going forward. I will be enrolling my 2nd dog in class shortly!
