Canine Life And Social Skills

C.L.A.S.S. is an on-leash basic manners class for dogs over 5 months. We help you teach your dog to behave politely at home and in social situations.

This multi-tiered program (Bachelor’s, Master’s & PhD levels) developed by the Association of Professional Dog Trainers uses positive reinforcement to strengthen relationships between humans and their canine companions. Each level presents more challenging skill mastery with increasing distractions.
