Little Learners Class

Do you feel like you could benefit from a training class tailored for your pint-size pup’s needs?  Join us for Little Learners! This is a great class for dogs that are worried about bigger dogs or feel more comfortable around dogs their own size. In this class, we cover the basics, like ‘sit’, ‘down,’ ‘come,’ walking nicely on leash and keeping all four little paws on the floor. We use real life scenarios so the skills you learn in class are easily transferred into your home and everyday life.

Dogs attending should be 4 months or older at the start of class and weigh 20 pounds or less when fully grown. If your dog will be between 9 and 15 weeks when class begins, please sign up for Puppy Manners instead. If your dog is larger, join us for Basic Manners.
