Basic Obedience Training & Socialization for Adolescent Dogs 

This workshop is designed to help dogs (that are 6 months and older) who have never developed good manners, have forgotten their manners or need to fine tune what they learned in Basic Obedience Puppy Training. This is also a great workshop for newly adopted dogs of all ages to teach them a firm training foundation and manners and help them get acclimated to family life. 


This workshop can be taught as a continuation of the BBDT Basic Obedience Puppy training or can be taught to adolescent and older dogs that need to start with the basics.

How many attend this workshop?

Normal class size ranges from 2-10 canine students and their human companions but due to Covid-19 class size has been reduced to allow for social distancing.
