Manners & Life Skills Program
$185 +HST • 8 weeks
Welcome to the Manners & Life Skills program! This program is designed to set you and your dog up for a lifetime of success. The program focuses on key life skills and manners such as focus, recall, stay, leave it, door manners, calm greetings, loose leash past other dogs, along with weekly mental enrichment exercises and challenges. The program is designed to prepare you and your canine companion to pass the Canine Good Neighbour certification.
The Manners & Life Skills Program is uniquely tailored to allow your dog to learn at their own pace while progressing through the program with the guidance and support that will set you and your dog up for success. When you enroll in the Manners & Life Skills Program, you are purchasing an 8-week class pass. All dogs start at Level 1 and have 8 consecutive weeks in the program; when you and your dog successfully complete the skills in Level 1, you are able to proceed to the Level 2 class when there is a spot available. At the end of your 8-week class, you are invited to purchase another pass and continue your journey through the Levels!
Dogs of all ages are invited to join the Manners & Life Skills Program. If you have a puppy aged 6 months and under, I recommend joining the Puppy Train & Play program first but it is not a requirement to enter the Manners & Life Skills program.
The cost for the 8-week pass is $185 +HST.
