What We Teach During Basic Obedience Training for Dogs (Held in Hoboken and Nutley)

The Basics class is designed for friendly puppies and dogs who are learning the basic commands for the first time or need a little brushing up on what they need more help on. We teach all the basic behaviors using fun exercises so that you can communicate well with your puppy or dog and have fun learning. You will learn how to teach your dog to walk nicely on a leash, stay, come, and not to jump on you or your friends and family as well as so much more:
