Please note NEW LOCATION!!!
We offer daytime, evening, and Saturday classes at Total Dog Company located here in New Hope. Class sizes are limited to no more than 4 dogs to make sure you receive as much individual attention as possible.
Good Manners Classes
Our goal is a dog that you are happy to live with and proud to own. We help you open a clear line of communication with your dog so you get the behaviors you want and eliminate the behaviors that you dislike. Our curriculum is designed around the American Kennel Club STAR Puppy and Canine Good Citizen certifications. And our dog-friendly methods are geared to be fun for both you and your dog!
Only adults may train in Good Manners classes, however children are welcome to observe if they can remain seated for one hour. Good Manners 1 class fee is $140 for six weekly one-hour sessions. Upon completing Good Manners 1 we recommend Good Manners 2 and Good Manners 3 classes.
To enroll please scroll through and select from our upcoming classes (either listed to the right or at the bottom of this page or here). After clicking on the desired class, the system will take you through a short registration form collecting vital information about your dog (name, breed, age, etc.). Upon completing the registration, you will see the option to either pay on-line with credit/debit card, or to send in a check. If you wish to pay by check your class will be reserved when we receive your payment. No refunds will be made once the class begins.
Due to limited class sizes make-up classes are unavailable for missed classes – but handouts will be provided and we are happy to answer any questions.
