B.A. Animal Behavior

​Preparing for the Canine Good Citizen Title is a commitment to good behavior from your dog when out in public and in new situations. Periodically I offer prep classes for therapy dog tests and the AKC Canine Good Citizen title.

Improve your communication


​work with your dog.


Teaching your dog simple manners can impact your everyday life in a very positive way! Teaching commands that keep your dog from rushing through doors, stealing belongings and jumping on your guests are basic manners that many dogs lack. These manners are absolutely worth having in your home.


​​​Dog Lovers Training has agreed to hold classes at Great Fields Kennel in N. Bennington! Small classes with lots of individual attention run for 5 - 6 weeks at a time. Please contact me to find out more.

Wherever you train, it is VERY important that your puppy attend a group class. Socializing your Puppy before they are 5 months old with other vaccinated puppies is extremely important in the development of a well balanced adult dog!
