helping dogs become their best selves!

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, September 9th 5:30pm
  • Saturday, October 2nd, noon
  • Saturday, November 6th, noon
  • Saturday, January 15th, noon

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?
