Manners Classes and Private Training

Manners classes teach social skills and cross-species communication so people and dogs are able to enjoy spending time together. Dogs are living beings who thrive on social interaction and require human attention to be well-adjusted. ARF's manner classes are a relaxed, game-based way for your dog to learn to be successful in a family home. For reactive or fearful dogs, please check out our Reactive Rover or Wallflowers classes, or contact us about private training sessions.

Refund request or class change must provide at least one week notice to be accommodated. Read Dog Training Policies and contact us with questions.
