  • Sit,

  • Come,
  • Walk on a loose leash,
  • Sit stay,
  • Down stay
  • Pay attention to you,
  • Greet people politely rather than jumping on them,

What to bring to class?

  • Please email Michigan Dog Training a copy of your dog’s vaccination record one week prior to the class start date or bring a copy of the vaccination verification (DHPP, Bordetella and Rabies and a negative fecal test result within the last six months) to the first night of class. Dogs cannot attend class without verification.
  • Why do we require the negative fecal test?  To ensure, all dogs are free of intestinal parasites (roundworm, hookworm and others); so they don’t pass it onto other dogs during class.
  • Soft food treats your puppy or dog enjoys
  • A hungry puppy/dog

(Dogs must be a “green light” dog)
