For Dog Owners
Wag Between Barks Manners Classes provides dog owners with opportunities to have their dogs’ LEARN real-life skills. Most pet owners want to include their dogs fully in their lives, which is much easier when the dogs are given boundaries and skills with real-life relevance. MANNERS shows dog owners how to teach these skills using effective, reward-based methods, and how to teach skills with reliability. Reward-based FORCE FREE TRAINING training methods EXCLUDE the use of punishment and are fun for both owner and dog! As a result of training, there is an increase in the odds that dogs will stay in their family for their lifetime rather than be given up due to behavior issues since training gives dogs more acceptable outlets for their energy. Also, with its three levels, MANNERS CLASSES offers goals and incentives for pet owners to continue training beyond basic skills, and to maintain those skills.
MANNERS promotes responsible dog ownership, including management of nuisance behavior, adherence to leash laws, and cleaning up after pets. Dogs with MANNERS are ambassadors for well-trained, socialized dogs, and educated dog owners are role models—they help train the younger generations in responsible dog ownership and setting a positive training foundation. MANNERS is about teaching and appreciating real-life, practical canine skills and using those skills in everyday situations, so that a dog is a well-behaved member of a household and a welcome part of society. Ripple effects throughout the community can occur as dog owners and dogs reach their potential through training. More well-trained dogs may increase opportunities such as animal-assisted therapy, search and service, and other animal-assisted benefits.
