Out and About 
For dogs that can do sits, downs, stays and walk politely at home and in the training room, but when you go somewhere new your dog seems to have forgotten everything. Dogs need to repeat the basics in many different situations before they can generalize behaviors they have learned. We’ll meet in a variety of dog friendly environments to teach your dog they can do their sits, downs and walk politely anywhere.
