Training begins with a series of private lessons in a controlled environment, adding controlled distractions as you progress through the program. You will then move into a group class with other dogs in which you learn to train in a more challenging environment. This is where you and your dog apply training to more real-life situations. Good Foundations offers a variety of programs for puppies to well-behaved dogs that are ready for the next step.
