Foundation Family Dog Manners
For friendly family dogs young & old
Six-week class covering basic obedience behaviors like sit, down, stay, walk nicely, greet politely and come when called.

Class Duration

Class meets once a week for 6 weeks, on the same day and at the same time each week. Each classroom session lasts for 55 minutes. Choose a starting date/time for details and to register for that 6-week series.

Cost & Size

The cost of the 6 week series is $200. Class is limited to 6 dogs.

Curriculum

We’ll cover basic obedience behaviors like sit, down, stay, walk nicely, greet politely and come when called. The classroom environment offers you the opportunity to practice these skills around dogs and handlers working on the same activities. The small class size ensures plenty of individualized coaching. Portions of this class may be held outside, weather and activity permitting.

Instructor

The instructor for the Tuesday classes is Lisa Frank. Lisa enjoys teaching manners class because she can see the person and dog strengthen their bond and improve communication — all while working together to develop the dog’s skills. This occurs whether the dog is brand new to the family or a long cherished household member improving existing skills.

Tools & Methods

Foundation Family Dog Manners is a reward-based class. Treats, toys, play and praise are generously utilized. Lisa recommends that you bring your dog to class on a front-clip harness or a flat buckle collar or regular harness. Bring a six-foot leash, lots of tasty, healthy treats and a tug toy (optional), settle mat (optional).

Who It's For

Foundation Family Dog Manners is for friendly family dogs of any age. As long as your dog is old enough to have received his first rabies vaccination, he may register for this class. Our adult dog classes are intended for dogs who are able to be comfortable and focused around other dogs in a relatively small space. Although a little bit of barking at the beginning of class is acceptable, dogs who bark throughout class or at other dogs are not good candidates for this class, and should check out our Private Coaching Sessions instead.
