Basic Manners 2

“We loved learning techniques to get Frank to listen to us better, and the classes were fun and informative. Not only is the training style positive for the dogs, it is also really positive for their humans. We felt empowered and encouraged that we could be successful and have a great relationship with our pup.”
 – C.W., Rockville, MD

About this Class:

If your dog already knows the basics, this class will offer new challenges! We will add distractions; pair cues, like “come when called” with “leave it”; and ask for longer stays. You will learn to keep your dog’s attention, even if tempted by another dog, a person moving, or a favorite toy. Prerequisite: Our Basic Manners I class or another positive class with instructor’s permission.


  • Michelle Mange (Right Start Maryland)
