Good Manners & Basic Obedience Class

**UPDATE Oct 1, 2020**  Our Good Manners Classes have been extremely popular and at this time, we will only be contacting the people who have been patiently waiting on our email notification waitlist to register for the October classes.  We have temporarily closed the Good Manners Class waitlist until Nov 1, 2020.  On Nov 1st, we will reopen the email notification list and there will be a link to sign up on this page.  

This class covers all the basics for dogs to have Good Dog Manners and Obedience, at home and in public.  

Good Manners & Basic Obedience Class covers a number of topics, such as:

  • Sit, Down, Stay
  • Off (stop jumping up on people and things)
  • Loose leash walking
  • Come when called (Recall)
  • Watch me
  • General safety and health care
  • Barking
  • Socialization
  • Extinguishing bad habits
  • Anxieties
  • and Fun training games too!

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 does not include any dog-dog playtime  (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 social play breaks please visit our Puppy Teen Class!

Additional Information

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 private sessions first 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, as well as it can become disruptive for other classes happening at the same time.

Need help with this? Let us know, we're happy to help!​

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 you have imported a dog/puppy from outside Canada or the US, please DO NOT attend classes until you've had the dog for over 2 weeks with no signs of illness.
This is to allow for an initial bonding period and health guarantee before attending class. You must have has the dog home and with no signs of illness for at least 2 weeks before the 1st class. If you signed up for a class, but your dog shows signs of illness please do not attend class the next class, and contact us right away.
