Group Manners Classes
New students start here! Marvelous Manners classes are broken down into 4 different topics. All students should hit up each topic at least once! You can then focus on the topics that you and your pup need the most help with!
The flexible scheduling means there will be different dogs in your classes as you progress. Some teams may be on class number one and learning the basics of a sit and other teams may be working on more advanced concepts in the same class!
The classes are designed to be repeated until you are satisfied with your level of training!
For More Advanced Classes Look Below!
After you have mastered the basics check out our Intermediate and Advanced Manners Classes to take it to the next level!
For the intermediate and advanced level canine teams! This class builds upon the basics you learn in Marvelous Manners and prepares you for the AKC Canine Good Citizen Test.
There is a heavy focus on loose leash walking, particularly around other dogs and people. This class covers stay work as well as how to politely greet other people.
There is a grooming component to the CGC Test so we also work on grooming and body handling in this class!
This class also works on delayed reinforcement and working without treats on your person all the time.
Ready to advance your skills! If you have all the basics down already then this is the class for you!
We use lots of fun games to build your dog’s behaviour up around various distractions.

Life Skills Classes
These classes, like Marvelous Manners, are broken down into 4 different topics and can be repeated as many times as it takes to be comfortable with the material!
