Small Adult Manners 1

Adult Manners 1 with a tiny twist! This beginner-level training course is tailored for dogs that weigh 20 pounds or less. This unique course covers the training essentials, including sit, stay, come, and walking on leash -- all with a little dog focus in mind. In addition, students will learn valuable tips on keeping small dogs safe in the city and travel training.

Frequency & Duration: 1 hour per week for 5 weeks. Please note: The first week is a mandatory orientation class for humans only--no dogs, please.

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

Course prerequisites: Dogs must weigh 20 pounds or less and be 6 months of age or older. (If your dog is between 4 and 9 months old, please look at our Adolescent Manners 1 class.) No prior training is required. Dogs must be able to be handled gently by a friendly stranger and must be able to work safely around people and other dogs on leash.
