Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) February 25, 2016 -- Park Cities Pet Sitter has announced the addition of two group dog training classes for this spring. Their Basic Manners 1.0 Class will be held for five consecutive Tuesdays from 6:30pm to 7:30pm, beginning March 22nd, in the outdoor courtyard located at 5831 McCommas Blvd in Lakewood. Cost for the 5-week course is $135 per dog, and the class will be limited to six dogs.
Basic Manners 1.0 will cover the most common dog commands owners use with their dogs; including Sit, Stay, Come, Down, Leave It and Take It. Walking with a loose leash will also be practiced as part of the curriculum. The Basic Manners 1.0 Class is ideal for people who have recently added a dog to their family or for those who have dogs that may need to brush up on their responsiveness to these basic commands.
Park Cities Pet Sitter’s Basic Manners 2.0 Class will be held for five consecutive Thursdays from 6:30pm to 7:30pm beginning Thursday, April 28th. The class will also be held at 5831 McCommas Blvd, and will be $135 per dog.
Basic Manners 2.0 will practice many of the same skills learned in Basic Manners 1.0, but the skills will be practiced in more difficult situations, and with more distractions. In addition, dogs enrolled in the class will learn and practice the ten skills needed to pass the AKC Canine Good Citizen Test. The Canine Good Citizen Test highlights a range of more advanced dog behavior skills like: remaining calm while other dogs are around, sitting politely for petting from a stranger, and walking through a crowd without bothering or jumping up on others. The Basic Manners 2.0 Class is a challenging next step for owners and dogs that have completed a basic obedience class, and would like to advance their skills even further.
At the end of the 5-week Basic Manners 2.0 Class, owners can choose—if they wish—to take the Canine Good Citizen test with their dog. Test administration costs $20, and is paid directly to the test administrator on the last day of class.

Park Cities Pet Sitter President, Joette White, says that clients love participating in her company’s group dog training classes because the participants build camaraderie while they learn. “I think everyone can feel a bit self-conscious if their dog does not behave perfectly when out in public,” said White. “But in a group dog training class, everyone can see by looking at their classmates around them that a well-trained dog comes from the consistent practicing of basic skills. It is so much fun to see how much progress our students make in such a short amount of time. Everyone gets truly excited when they see a dog master something new that they once struggled with; it inspires everyone around them to continue working diligently with their dog.”
