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
    • 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™. 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
    • Optional clicker

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

Manners Class Graduation Day (2:21)

Jessie was a great trainer for our class and was very helpful in getting my dog to build confidence and come out of his shell. He started class scared of his own treats and everything around him and by the end he was excited to go to class and jumping up with excitement to see Jessie. He has made really strong progress with all of his learned behaviors. It was so helpful to have a flexible approach that was customized when he would not be able to overcome his fear of certain portions (fear of clickers, touch exercises) so we wouldn’t have gotten this far without the individual support and he seems like a whole new dog! I’m very happy and definitely considering the next level of classes.
