Manners Training encompasses behaviours like counter surfing, pulling on leash, not coming when called and housetraining.

Generally, these behaviours can be learned in a group class but some owners feel their dogs learn better with one-on-one training or like the convenience of setting up lessons to accommodate a busy schedule.

Manners Training is available in 4 session prepaid packages and each session is 50 minutes long.  

Fee:  $340.00 + HST

Due to high demand for private training the pay-as-you-go option is no longer offered.
