For graduates of Puppy Manners or equivalent, this course is designed to strengthen basic manners with an emphasis on the challenges of navigating through your puppy's adolescence. You will improve your pup's sit, down, come when called, and learn "leave it" and "go to your mat." Fun training exercises will teach you how to help your pup be more focused on you around distractions and not jump to greet people.
Please note that this course may or may not offer puppy playtime depending on the makeup of the class.
