Would you like for your dog to NOT jump up on people? Come when called? Perform basic obedience on cue in ANY situation? Join trainer and behavior specialist, Nicole Kazmierzak, for a four-part series geared toward acquiring and maintaining these invaluable skills and more! In Basic Obedience + Manners you will learn how to work with your dog to teach them how to interact politely with other dogs and humans while bonding with you!
Expect to spend a few minutes each day in-between classes practicing your “homework” with your dog. Class size is limited so that each student receives individualized attention. No dogs on the FIRST night of class. Dogs attend classes 2, 3, and 4.
Week One: Obedience Demonstrations (NO DOGS! You will practice with a demo dog)
Week Two: Sit (for everything!), Down, and (Easy) Wait
Week Three: Leave It, Stay, and Come
Week Four: Leash Walking Basics
Please note: Each ticket covers two humans and one dog. This is a four week series and participants are expected to attend all four sessions.
This class is in partnership with the Main Street Pet Wellness Center.
