Course Description: Do you want a dog that is polite, happy and cooperative, both inside and outside of your home? Want to have a dog that is a pleasure to walk, take on adventures, and to introduce to new people and situations?  Manners 101 is the foundation course you need to help you and your dog reach this goal! We use gentle, effective, training methods based on the science of how dogs learn to help you build a cooperative and lasting bond with your dog. This class is designed as a basic manners course for dogs 4 months and older who have had no previous obedience training, or who need a refresher.
