The Basic Life Skills class is designed for dogs age 16 weeks and up. This class teaches your dog not just basic obedience, but the basic skills needed to create a strong relationship and live a long happy life in your home. This class is a continuation of our Puppy Socialization class, but is also excellent for new adult dogs such as rescues or changes in ownership. No prior training is required, but even if your dog has some skills, this is a fun way to improve upon them! During this 6 week class the following skills will be covered:

  • Name / Come
  • Leave It / Self Control
  • Sit
  • 4 On the Floor (no jumping)
  • Get It, Drop It
  • Polite Leash Walking

  • Go To Bed
  • Stay
  • Relax Quietly
  • Handling for grooming/vet visits
