  • Advanced Manners

    $55.00$110.00
    Do you want to improve your dog’s manners? This course advances the skills and games you learned in your previous puppy or adult manners class. You will expand It’s-Yer-Choice and Crate Games to help set boundaries and improve control. You will strengthen your dog’s understanding of “Sit” and “Down” through longer duration, harder distractions, and from longer distances. Recalls will also be proofed with greater distance and distraction and, once your loose-leash walking with distractions has been mastered, you will be introduced to off-leash work! In addition to many other skills, you will be cueing your dog to a mat or bed from long ranges and teaching him/her to maintain that behavior with increased duration and distraction as well as teaching him/her to calmly greet people and dogs. PREREQUISITE: Must have completed Think Pawsitive’s Beginner Puppy School, Adult Manners or Canine IQ Camp. Class will be held at: Think Pawsitive Dog Training 301 Commerce Street, STE F Waukesha, WI 53186
