Adolescent Manners

A class for the Teenage Dog in your life. 

Do you have a teenage dog that has a LOT to learn?

Are you struggling with leash manners, impulse control, chewing and jumping up? Do you want your dog to learn the basics in a peer environment? Well, Adolescent Manners has the answer to all your “teenage parent” questions!

This is the class for dogs 4 months to 9 months old that missed out on Puppy Class but still need to learn socialization, recall, sit, and more. Housetraining, chewing, jumping, and other adolescent behaviors will be covered.

Frequency & Duration: 1 hour a week for 5 weeks. First class is a mandatory orientation for people only–no dogs, please.

Fee: $175 (if your dog was adopted from a shelter or 501©3rescue group, or has taken a class with us in the past year, the fee is $150)

Course prerequisites: Dogs must be between the ages of 4 and 9 months old, comfortable around other dogs and humans while on leash, and must be up-to-date on all vaccinations. (If your dog is under 4 months, check out our Puppy Manners class! If your dog is over 9 months, check out Just the Basics or Just the Small Basics!)

Location: 243 Alabama Street

Class includes: Handbook, homework, and certificate of completion

Class capacity: 8-10 dogs
