How do we do it?

  • Dogs practice calm behaviors outside in the real world, and right along side of other dogs.
  • Parental lessons begin as soon as day 4 in order to ensure transfer of new behaviors to home.
  • Dogs are transitioned off of treats by the end of the course, (with the exception of fear or aggression issues).

Developed over 40 years by the renowned Olde Towne School For Dogs in Alexandria, VA, and then refined into the Mann's Best Friend programs and principles taught here at L.A. School for Dogs.

If you plan on taking your dog places, socialization to the environment, people, and then dogs is a must.  Puppies are the most receptive to new things up until 16 weeks when the opportunity to create a "bomb proof" dog begins to diminish.

Puppies do not yet have the attention span for formal training such as 'stay' or 'heel' on a short leash until they are closer to 6 months of age.  But there is so much to do including potty training, crate training, house training, how to deal with jumping up or biting and chewing.  We will also teach following on leash, socialization sit, lay down, come when called, etc.  Includes 3 one-hour lessons, written instruction, videos, plus unlimited telephone and email support.
