Basic Manners & Communication

Basic Manners and Communication is an introductory class focused on relationship building, by practicing and perfecting the Top 10 Behaviors All Dogs Need to Know. These small classes are a perfect way to start a relationship with a new pet or restart training with a current one.

marcyAt pranaDOGS, we have worked with dogs for years, in different capacities, and have developed a shortlist of trainable behaviors we put “on cue” for all dogs to learn. It’s not all we train, but we feel every dog needs to know to be a well-rounded member of society. We call these the Top 10 Behaviors.

In addition to learning and practicing the Top 10 Behaviors, we also discuss problem-solving, body language (yours and your dog), building associations, different training methods and so much more. Each session will end with a playtime to ensure they maintain appropriate play skills.

This is a 4-session class that meets once per week, 90 minutes per session. Upcoming sessions:

  • Thursday, 4/8/21 5:30pm
  • Saturday, 4/17/21 12pm
  • Thursday, 5/6/21 5:30pm

Sessions are held at La plata County Humane Society. The cost is $120, and sign-up is required. Weather permitting we’ll be working outside more than inside. Sign-up below if you’d like to enroll your pup in an upcoming class. Want to pay by credit card?

Weather permitting, we’ll work outside as much as possible. We also keep classes small; less than 10 dogs per class. Please plan to wear a mask and practice social distancing guidelines.
