About our dog training classes

Classes are taught on leash at all times. When first learning a new behavior, a food lure is used along with positive reinforcement. Focus is on basic manners while addressing common behavior problems such as chewing, polite on-leash greetings and barking. Exercises covered include: watch, sit, down, stay, walking on a loose leash, heeling and recall.
