Basic Manners Puppy Training

Basic Manners Puppy Training Classes – Puppy Manners, Puppy House Training, Puppy Socialization Classes.

Sheba and I have been joining Dennis' training sessions since Sheba came home from the Humane Society and we started with puppy classes. Sheba gets so excited when she sees we're going to the facility. Dennis is so patient with both dogs and humans and he is always willing to change up the class or session to meet the needs of the dog, be it getting the dog's attention or giving them something more challenging to do. We enjoy our training sessions. I thank Dennis for helping Sheba become a fantastic dog and me to become a better friend and partner to her.
