Class Focus

Foundation exercises focus on getting attention and then adding other skills for the owner/dog team around distractions. We will explain how dogs learn and the generalization, fluency, and reliability as it pertains to the skills you teach your dog.

Class Skills

Name response and attention behaviors (look cue, touch cue), sit (sit/stay for dinner, sit/stay for doors, sit politely for greeting), down, stand, off/wait cue, come when called, loose leash walking with side swing heel position, stay, and an introduction to the leave-it cue.

After Good Manners 1 – we recommend helping your dog solidify their skills in continued training classes such as Good Manners 2 and CGC Prep!
