Teach your dog the behaviors essential to surviving in NYC and gain training skills that will help you both outside of the classroom!

In this urban-focused version of our basic manners class, you’ll learn how to improve your dog’s behavior around the home and on busy New York City streets. This class focuses on building skills learned in Puppy Kindergarten, Group Orientation or an Introductory Private Consult to set your dog up for successful and stress-free city living. Essential for all city dwellers, this class is appropriate for beginners as well as dogs who have had some training already.
