  • You’ll be surprised how well your dog can focus on you in your home environment.

About this Class:

An adolescent dog’s natural impulses are often at odds with our own expectations. This four-week online class will help you work on challenging behaviors that are specific to keeping the peace in your home. Included are training and management techniques to help with attention seeking behaviors, darting out the door, counter and table surfing, excessive alert barking, excitement around guests coming into your house, and more. For dogs between 5 months and 2 years of age.

Prerequisite:Puppy Kindergarten, Adolescent Dog Class, or permission of the instructor.

Instructor:  Sarah Stoycos, KPA CTP

Fee:  $150
