The programme will provide a reliable response to basic obedience cues and life skills that enable appropriate social interaction with humans and other dogs.
The first class is a lecture for owners and handlers only.
The skills mastered in Life Skills 1 provide the foundation for appropriate meeting and greeting behaviours with other dogs and people.
