This six-week class will help you learn how to communicate effectively with your dog, by teaching home manners (no jumping, nipping, mouthing or barking inappropriately) and basic obedience such as sit-stay and walking on the leash.  We will also discuss behavioral issues as needed.  Dog must be able to wear a collar, be able to be inside for class without pottying and not be overly aggressive.  Dogs must be 6 months or older and be current on vaccinations.  The first class is (overview) lecture, so there will be NO DOGS IN THE FIRST CLASS.
