Elementary Manners
consists of one
thirty minute orientation,
and six one hour
group classes.

Step 1: Attend Orientation

Learn a little about us, our class, and positive reinforcement training. After attending, you’ll be ready to hit the ground running on Week 1!
(No dogs at orientation, please.)

Step 2: Come to Class!

Bring your dog for six weeks of flexible, fun,
fit your life training.

Elementary Manners runs as an open enrollment class: as soon as you’re ready to start, we’re ready to have you!

We have three class themes that we rotate through each week, to ensure that you will have the opportunity to learn all of the foundation skills your dog needs to be a polite member of society.

Each week, we will focus on one theme – a total of 4 skills – and work with you and your dog, at your dog’s level, and make progress as their speed. Don’t worry – no two dogs start at the same point, so there’s no need to make class a competition.

We believe in progress over perfection, and every dog has the ability to make great progress.

Have to miss a week due to another commitment? No worries! Sign up for the weeks that work best for you. You have nine weeks to finish your six classes – and because you aren’t starting on the same day as your classmates, there’s no drama if you don’t finish on the same day, either.

When?

Sundays at 10:00 am

Class is run on rolling enrollment –
as soon as you’re ready to start, we’re ready to have you.

Where?

Union Bridge, MD

Approximately 25 minutes from Frederick, Westminster, and Eldersburg, MD.

$30/class
or
$175 for 6 classes
