Finishing School

$120 for six weeks. Prerequisite: Everyday Obedience, Middle School or equivalent.

Finishing School builds on the firm foundation you and your dog have developed in Everyday Obedience. Now it's time to practice and polish the skills you've already learned and explore some new ones.

This class will help you to

  • have a dog who can greet visitors to your home and mingle at parties without jumping and begging
  • take your best friend along with you while you chill out on the patio of your favorite cafe, restaurant or bar
  • prepare for the AKC's Canine Good Citizen test
  • practice the skills most therapy dog programs require
  • get ready for agility, treiball and other activities that require high levels of motivation, focus and control.

Each class meets for one hour once a week for six weeks.

Please ask for next start date!
