Intermediate Manners

Strengthen what your dog has learned with increased distractions and distance while also learning new skills. Intermediate Manners is designed for dogs and owners that have completed the Basic Manners class. We strongly recommend this class for those who plan to take our Canine Good Citizen class in pursuit of certification as a therapy dog team with our Pet Assisted Therapy program.


“Our instructor knows how to look at the human-dog students as a team and find out what works best for them, instead of focusing on the breed characteristics or the fallibility of the humans. Fantastic!”


COST: $125

Includes class handouts, clicker, and certificate of completion.

Proceeds from registration fees support the animals and programs at Lollypop Farm. Thank you!
