  • | 11:15am - 12:15pm | Local Events, dog training, dog class, dog obedience
    - Does your dog need to brush up on his manners? Maybe you haven't taken a Basic Class, or your dog "forgot" what he learned in class because it was ages ago. The Manners at Home Clinic, offered at My Dogs Got Class, focuses on skills that will help your dog act appropriately around your home.

    This clinic runs 3 weeks and the next session starts 11:15 am on July 25. Pre-registration is REQUIRED and can be done online.

    Instructors will work on getting your dog to sit politely for greeting, teach him ‘go to place’, and give him an alternate way to say hello that does not include jumping on your family members or guests. They will also focus on the safety commands of waiting at doorways and ‘leave it’.
