Intermediate Manners

In-person Intermediate Manners

About this Class:

Take your training to the next level with real-life applications. If your dog already knows the basics, this class will offer new challenges, and more practice with other dogs in sight! 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.

Please note:

The in-person class is not appropriate for dogs who display reactive behaviors (barking, lunging) toward people or other dogs.


Our Basic Manners, Adolescent, or Puppy Kindergarten class or another positive class with instructor’s permission.

We use only positive methods – no choke, prong, or electronic collars. Training is fun for both you and your dog!
