Manners 3 (Great Dog! Foundation)

Description:   In this dynamic class, we’ll take your training to the next level.   This Great Dog class is an ideal stepping stone to more advanced work or to build your dog’s impulse control.   You’ll refine your clicker skills as you develop your training abilities right along with your dog.

Progressing through WAGD’s Manners 1, 2 and 3 helps you develop your dog into a companion that can be a big part of your life.   You will be able to increasingly count on his behavior in challenging, exciting and distracting environments.


The basic behaviors will be proofed in challenging environments.    We’ll sprinkle in working outside of the training ring (in the shop, parking lot and spectator area) to help your dog “generalize” what he performs in the training ring to the outside world.    This class will teach all the skills needed to take the AKC CGCA (Canine Good Citizen Advanced) evaluation.    Those who are interested in earning the CGCA title may enroll in a CGCA Prep & Test.    This class is also the foundation level class for our Great Dog! ongoing program.
