This 6 week course, taught by Pia Silvani, Behavior Director at Asheville Humane Society, will teach you how to bridge the communication gap and teach your dog basic manners using reward-based training methods!

Have you ever wondered why your dog pulls on leash, jumps up to greet people and won’t do as you ask? Have you ever said “she has a mind of her own?” The Canine Manners Course may just be the class you need!

This course will teach you how to effectively communicate with your dog. You will learn the skills necessary to teach your dog basic manners using reward-based training methods. We will build reliable behaviors such as sit, down, stay, wait, come, leave it, tug and much more! The class is limited to 8 dogs, age 16 weeks or over when the course begins (if your dog is under 16 weeks of age, please sign up for the Puppy Kindergarten class).

* All dogs must be current on the following vaccines distemper, parvo, bordetella and rabies to participate in this course.

The cost of this course ($175) includes six classes, held one hour per week for six Saturdays on the following dates, June 26, July 10, 17, 24, 31, and August 7 (please note that there will not be a class on the 4th of July weekend) from 9-10 A.M. unless otherwise arranged by the trainer. The course is held at the Asheville Humane Society Community Center, 1425 Patton Avenue, Asheville, NC 28806.

**Important - If your dog is reactive on leash to other dogs, please contact Pia at before signing up.
