Can we lend a paw?

At AWLA we believe that training is fundamental to building strong bonds with your pets.

Basic Manners Class

Our Basic Manners Class is a four-week series that will cover the basic cues your dog needs to know: "sit", "down", "stay", and more. We use positive reinforcement training methods to foster a stronger relationship with your dog as you learn together as a team. Whether you've had your dog for a week or a year, it's never too late to work on your foundation skills in a small group setting!

Dogs are required to be up to date on Bordetella, Distemper, and Rabies vaccines to take part in this class. You will be asked to upload your dog's vaccine records when you register.

Dogs must be human and dog friendly. If your dog is anxious, barks, and/or lunges around people or dogs, a group class will likely be overwhelming for them. We are still happy to work with you and your dog in a private setting to meet their individual needs and set them up for success.
