About the Class*

Building a foundation of basic skills encourages behavior and habits that make daily life with a dog safe and enjoyable. In this class, dogs and handlers will learn special handling and management considerations for toy dogs to small dogs (under 25lbs). Dogs will improve manners, interaction skills and learn self-control in sit, down, stay, wait, come, and walking. We will address both management and training so your dog will become an even more fantastic addition to your household. Children welcome!

We also offer, by request, the American Kennel Club (AKC) STAR PUPPY program-(Star-Puppy-Brochure)for dogs under one year in classes taught by our CGC Evaluators. Participation in this program is not required to take the class.
