This class covers training essentials, including sit, down, stay, come, and loose-leash walking, plus much more. The first class of the 5-week series is an orientation for guardians only--please leave your dogs at home. Training with your dog will begin in class two. This class is appropriate for dogs of all sizes. (We also offer a small dog only obedience class, Just the Small Basics, and a specialty class for shy/fearful dogs, Just the Basics for Shy Dogs.)

Dogs must be 5 months of age or older, able to be handled gently by a friendly stranger, and able to work safely around people and other dogs on leash.
