Off The Leash 
 "Real World" Basic Obedience


Real World Basic Manners is a fun curriculum where we work each week in a different simulated “environment". In this weekly class, for older pups and dogs of all ages, we will review behaviors and then we will set the scene. We will practice basic obedience relevant to each setting, work on impulse control and end with an obedience challenge. This class will focus on giving you the tools to help your dog become a well mannered, polite member of the family and society.  The goal is for you both to enjoy each other even more than you do now.
