Adult/Adolescent Basic Manners
Good manners are always in fashion - bring out the best in your dog.Register
Our Basic Manners group dog training class is designed to help you set a solid foundation for basic life skills and to improve your understanding of a modern, science-based approach to communicating with and teaching your dog. In addition to teaching your dog several manners skills useful for city living, this course will help you learn how to
efficiently and effectively increase desirable behaviors and decrease undesirable behaviors in the classroom, at home, and out in the real world. Group Classes can be a wonderful opportunity to practice around controlled distractions in order to better prepare your dog and you for more challenging environments, such as the busy streets of NYC!
