What is Delightful Doggy Finishing School?
Delightful Doggy Finishing School is a six-week course on how dogs learn and how clicker/marker/reward-based training works, canine communication, manners and obedience cues (sit, down, stay, leash skills, etc.), basic problem solving, tricks and games, and how to work with your dog to have the perfect Delightful Doggy!
