BASIC MANNERS 2 -- Open to dogs and puppies 16 weeks and older at the start of class.  This class is intended for those dog/owner teams that have already mastered “sit,” “down,” “stay” for short durations and short distances and have moderate leash control.  This class does not address socialization for the dogs.  We will build on the skills you and your dog learned in Basic Manners 1 and begin to add more distractions.

In this class, we will focus on:

●        improving leash walking

●        increasing distractions during “stay”

●        building a reliable “come” in different environments

●        strengthening various aspects of our friendly greetings
