Good Manners Training for Dogs
We are now sharing our homes and our lives in ever closer ways with our dogs. This makes it even more important than ever that every dog is given a good canine education. A good education is not only about teaching strict obedience commands, but even more about how to live together in harmony. Investing the time to teach your dog will make living with her easier and that investment could even save her life.
Teaching your dog to say please is actually a radical change for both of you. It requires your dogs to adjust how he asks for resources and it forces you to be mindful about the many ways you can implement the techniques.
This 10 weeks, Intensive Course works on manners in training sessions to promote good habits, instead of just managing everyday situations as they happen, or let bad habits develop, in order to create mindfulness, and make living together more enjoyable and less stressful for both dogs and humans.
This course is a great way to practice for the Advanced AKC Canine Good Citizen Tests, which will be offered bi-annually.

Who can join Dog Good Manners Training?
Any dog can learn Good Manners. Puppies can enroll from 5 month onwards, as soon as they have finished their vaccinations.
This course is suitable for both, young dogs that do not (yet) exhibit bad behaviors, in order to be proactive and turn your dog into the dog you always wanted.
It is also suitable for dogs that already have developed bad habits, like darting out the open door or gate, being over excited at meal times and gulping down food, begging, stealing food of the counter, jumping up on people, or pulling on the leash, and change them into polite behaviors.
All exercises are broken down into small increments that are easy to understand and practice, so that Good Manners can be implemented immediately.
Minimum number of Dogs: 4
Dogs must be under control and be able to take food treats in a group setting.
Motivation by food is required. This course is designed to help owners train their dogs to be polite family members. Serious behavior problems (eg. aggression) are outside the scope of this course.

What to expect from this program?
Standard obedience training, like, sit, down, stay, etc. might be useful, but will not help you to achieve harmony in common day-to-day situations. In this unique 10 weeks program, we will address all the most common day to day scenarios that often create undesired responses, leading to “badly behaved” dogs.
You will learn clear communication with your dog, while working on appropriate responses to these situations in structured trainings sessions, so that your dog gets the chance to learn and understand what behavior is expected of her in that setting, and you no longer have to just manage it, or even avoiding it completely.
All trainings scenarios are broken down into small increments that are easy to understand and follow and can be adjusted to the level of training of your dog. All exercises can immediately be incorporated into your daily life, so that you do not have to wait until your dog is fully trained to see the success of your work. At the same time, you are strengthening the bond between you and your dog, and you become a team!
Your interactions and understanding becomes more enjoyable for both you.
