Good Manners Obedience Classes

We all want to have good dogs and one of the best ways to ensure that is through a structured class environment. Dog training should be FUN in addition to working toward the goal of having a good,
obedient dog. Best Paw Forward is built on relationship and reward based training. Our obedience or
"good manners" training has a variety of levels to accommodate you as you and your dog progress
in your relationship.

In order to help you plan, here are the dates we will be closed for the upcoming Holiday season.
We will be closed for Christmas 12/23 - 12/25, 12/28, 12/29, 12/31 and 1/1. No Puppy Social on 12/28.

Level 2 Manners

Picks up where Basic Manners left off and concentrates on those hard to train areas. Improved manners and reliability, more emphasis on heeling and automatic sits, preparation for off-leash heeling, more attention exercises to keep your dog focused on you rather than another dog or person, proofing the recall so that it becomes automatic and reliable. All exercises take cues learned in Basic Manners and practice them at greater distances and with more distractions. Go to mat, drop on recall, fronts and finishes are also covered. Level 2 is a great way to prepare for Canine Good Citizen, Therapy Dog, Rally Obedience and Outdoor Adventures. Basic Manners class is a prerequisite. NEW CLASSES BEGIN ON THE FOLLOWING DATES:

6 One-Hour Sessions....$150
