Join us for a Basic Manners Dog Training Class! This class is co-taught by Sue Thibedeau and Pamela Natale, bringing many combined years of experience and education in dog training. This six week course will help you teach your dog many helpful cues such as Leave It, Wait, Come, and so much more! We will cover loose leash dog walking to enhance your relationship with your dog while out and about on dog walks. Come learn how to work as a team with your dog, and bridge the gap of communication between you and your furry family member. All gentle and kind training methods used. Bring your dog and the family, and be amazed at what you and your dog can learn together! Class is for beginners: puppies and adult dogs alike, and dogs who may need a refresher in training!
