Fall 2020: Pets

For dogs at least 4 months old. This class will teach you to train your dog to be a well-mannered and obedient pet. Topics will include understanding your dog, communicating effectively, basic obedience commands, leash walking, and behavior modification. Plus, you'll learn strategies to effectively address problems like digging, jumping, chewing, barking, and more. Your dog must have a collar, with a 6-foot leash. Bring your dog to the first class.  No class on days of inclement weather, a make-up will be arranged. No indoor facilities will be available. Please dispose of your trash properly, including gloves and face masks.
