We will resume classes at the Walpole Veterinary Hospital as soon as they reopen their building to the public.

Details

Most basic dog training classes equip you with a number of commands (sit, down) and send you on your way. But once you get back home or outside where there are myriads of distractions, the commands don’t work so well. We teach differently. Yes, you get a solid foundation of basic obedience, but more importantly, you learn to deal with real-world challenges.

We give you the skills to solve behavior problems as and when they appear. We show you how to work at your dog’s level and build on your successes. Over time, you will transform your unruly pooch into a polite companion you can take anywhere!

Please note that the first class of every Basic Manners series is an orientation for people only.

Basic Manners includes: Sit, down, stay, come when called, impulse control, and nice leash manners. Also: Lure training, canine motivation and body language, and how to use brain toys.
