Life Skills 1 is our obedience training program that will enable you to teach manners and listening skills to your 4-legged family member. It is for dogs who have attended the Puppy Essentials program or are just starting their obedience training. Dogs must be at least 4 months of age to participate. This 9-week course has a total class time of 14.5 hours. Most lessons last 1.5 hours and include a question and answer period. Students will also have access to Online Lessons that will provide troubleshooting and suggested practice sessions for home, complete with video examples. Your dog will learn to:

  • Come the first time every time, even when distracted – a potentially life-saving lesson!
  • Walk on a leash happily without pulling you
  • Greet your guests politely
  • Not jump up on people
  • Sit and stay even when distracted
  • Lie down and stay even with distractions
  • Play and then settle down on command
