Basic Manners Dog Training Classes
Tuesdays, September 30 – November 4, 2014, 8:00 – 9:00 pm
What is it?
6-week training class (First week is informational session for people only; dogs come the next 5 weeks).
SABD offers dog training classes that are fun, positive and easy to fit into your life. We offer a variety of class times in an effort to meet your scheduling needs.
Our Basic Manners class will not only help you and your dog learn the basics, ‘sit’, ‘stay’, ‘down’, and loose-leash walking, but will help your dog learn to listen to these cues around distractions. We will work on loose leash walking around other dogs, people, toys, etc., we will help teach your dog how to come away from distractions, and, most importantly, simply help your dog learn how to focus on you when you really need it. We use real life scenarios so the skills you learn in class are easily transferred into your home and everyday life.
Is your dog really distracted by the presence of other dogs? Does your dog bark, whine, pull and stop responding to you even when you just see a dog at a distance? Consider our Reactive Rover class, or contact us, (210)204-3176 to help determine whether Basic Manners is appropriate for your dog.
Have a small dog that needs Basic Manners? Check out our Little Learners class!
Our Training Philosophy
Our training philosophy focuses on building a strong, healthy bond between a dog and his person through positive reinforcement. We do not like to use fear or intimidation-based tactics. SABD trainers believe that reward-based techniques and education on canine behavior is the best way to promote a trusting and respectful relationship between individuals and their dogs.
1. Your dog must be at least 4 months of age for Basic Manners. Under 4 months of age? Check out our Puppy Manners program!
2. Your dog must be spayed or neutered. (For dogs under 6 months of age, the spay/neuter requirement is waived.)
3. We require that your dog has shown no known aggression to people or animals.
4. Your dog must be current on vaccinations appropriate for their age, including Da2pp, Rabies, and Bordatella.
