Welcome to K9 Good Manners!
Your dog will get a solid foundation for life-long good manners and a great start for any type of other training or competition. All training is force-free and based in behavioral science, which means we teach the dog to do the behaviors on their own while having fun without corrections or training collars.
Both people and dogs will benefit!
Your dog will learn the basics of –
Sit/down/stand Give Response to name
Stay/Wait/Settle Go to your place or bed Sit and shake hands greeting
Walking on leash Come when called Leave it and Off
Social good manners Allows exam/grooming Responds to you when distracted
You will learn -
how to reinforce good behavior, how to break training down into small steps,
How to “mark” a behavior, importance of diet, exercise and identification.
Note that some dogs learn quicker than others, some have a teenage brain, some have environmental issues that can interfere with learning. This class is a start on the path for a well-behaved dog and a wonderful relationship.
When you come to class bring tasty treats, a very hungry dog, a 6 foot leash and your dog should be wearing a harness (preferred), or buckle, snap or martingale collar and a 6 foot leash.
