Beyond the Basics! Intermediate Manners Class

Continue the fun with our Beyond the Basics class! In this five-week class, you’ll discover how to get your dog to listen to you – even in a distracting environment. You’ll learn new cues like ‘leave it’ and ‘go to your bed’ and continue to improve on skills like loose-leash walking. This is a great class to take your dog’s training to the next level and a good choice if your dog needs more practice before joining our Canine Good Citizen Prep Class.

This is an intermediate level class for dogs 6 months and older. If you haven’t completed a basic level class, please sign up for Basic Manners or Little Learners instead.
