The Well Mannered Dog

The Well Mannered Dog is a three-week dog training class that introduces dog owners to canine training methods, suggests tips to make training fun and easy and covers the importance of why good manners matter. AWA’s knowledgeable and friendly instructors believe that every interaction you have with your dog teaches him something. All training is positive and reward-based. The Well Mannered Dog classes are a great way to bond with your dog and get a leg-up on helping your dog become a very polite pooch.
