Three 6-week sessions are being offered beginning February 23, 2017 and graduating March 30, 2017.
PET MANNERS: Basic Level Training: You will have fun working with your dog in a force-free way using positive reinforcement. You will learn to use verbal cues and hand signals to teach your best friend to sit, stand, lay down, focus (watch me), best manners at the front door and polite leash walking along with other behaviors.
PET MANNERS: Level 2: This is an advanced level training class where you will continue to have fun working with your dog in a force-free way using positive reinforcement. This course requires basic obedience and upon completion, handlers and dogs will be evaluated on the skills learned to earn the AKC Canine Good Citizen Certificate.
PET THERAPY PREPARATION: Get Ready for Evaluation: In this class you and your pet will learn everything you need to know to be prepared for Pet Therapy Evaluation. Your pet brings you so much joy, learn how you both can share that joy with others! Whether you volunteer with Suncoast Humane Society, or on your own, it can be a rewarding way to give back to your community!
The cost is $100 for these 6 week sessions and you will need to bring treats and wear sneakers.
If you adopted a pet through Suncoast Humane Society, you enjoy a 20% discount and pay only $80 per session.
