Adolescent Manners Class

Let us help you survive those teenage months with your pup! Adolescent Manners is the next step in training for dogs under a year of age who have already taken a basic level class. We will continue the training, the socialization and the fun! We will deal with adolescent issues like rough play, jumping on people, coming when called, loose leash walking, go to bed on cue and more!

Our five week class will focus on:

  • Continuing socialization with people and other dogs.
  • Tips for surviving your dog’s difficult teenage stage.
  • Teaching the super important concept of self control.
  • Continuing the basic cues: stay, come and loose leash walking.
  • Building towards more off-leash control.

Adolescent Manners is an intermediate level class for dogs who are under one year of age when class begins. If your dog is one year or older, join our Beyond the Basics class instead. If you have not taken a basic level class, start with Puppy Manners, Basic Manners or Little Learners before joining this class.
