Our goal is to teach all the good manners in the dog training program based on your dog’s previous skills learned. It is important to only progress at your dog’s pace to ensure each training session affords a solid foundation before moving forward to the next step of difficulty; therefore, your dogs’ pace may require additional lessons to reach program goals and your expectations.

For Dogs Who Have Completed One Of Our Dog Training Programs

Mastering good manners is only possible with consistent follow-up and ongoing practice. So once your dog has completed one of our learning programs, our Clever Canines Daycare Program is the natural next step as we partner with pet parents to ensure each pet’s ongoing success in demonstrating good manners. Perfect for pet parents who want their pet to enjoy a combination of mental and physical enrichment throughout the day, Clever Canines consistently practice their good manners while enjoying a fun and more structured doggie daycare environment.
