This class covers all the basics for dogs to have Good Dog Manners, at home and in public.
While we will do a lot of hands-on training in class, we will also address general behaviour problems as well.
Good Manners & Basic Obedience Class covers Basic Obedience such as:
- off (stop jumping up on people and things)
- loose leash walking
- come when called
- watch me
But will also focus on general behaviours issues such as:
- extinguishing bad habits
- general safety and health care
- and fun training games!
The class is tailored to the students in each set, by spending more time focusing on the behaviours/topics that students in that class set want to work on the most.
This class is designed for dogs who need to work on their basics and good manners, and is not a play-n-train class structure (there is no physical interaction between dogs in the class).
If your dog is under 12 months old and you feel they would benefit more from a class with that style of training please visit our Puppy Teen Class!

If your dog is reactive (i.e. lunges, barks etc towards other dogs and/or people), and requires a personal bubble of space from other dogs or people, we will accommodate your dog as long as you have previously or are currently working with a positive reinforcement trainer on your dog's reactivity, so that you are skilled at managing your dog in a group setting.
Need a trainer for this? Let us know! We are happy to help!
If your dog barks excessively around other dogs (and cannot easily be stopped with a toy or food) we ask that you please contact us to schedule a private session before joining a group class, so that we can work on the barking before joining a more exciting group class. While we understand your dog may just be excited or nervous around the other dogs, if the dogs are constantly barking it is unfair to the students who cannot hear the instructor, and the instructor who has to try to talk over barking dogs.
