Whether your dog is brand new to you or has been a member of your family for years, we can help you teach them some new skills! Good Boy Basics is a beginner training class that will cover the foundational skills your dog needs to know, including focus, patience, polite greetings, and leash walking. The class also includes work on sit, down, stay, and come. Dogs who already have some obedience skills are welcome to join us for the challenge of a group environment. Exercises are tailored to your dog’s level as much as possible.

This class is not suitable for dogs who bark excessively at other dogs or people (we would be happy to help you with this problem in our Barkers Anonymous class or in a private training session!).

  • Age requirements: Open to dogs six months or older at the start of class, or graduates of Puppy Prep School.
  • Vaccination requirements: DHPP and Rabies vaccinations must be up to date. Classes held at Paws at Play require a bordatella vaccination (recommended but not required at other locations).
  • Length: Six weeks (one hour per week). Any breaks for holidays are noted for individual classes.

Please make sure you review our class policies before registering, including information on what to bring to class and cancellation policies.
