Dog Training

Johnstown, NY


We at Harvey’s thrive on teaching Basic obedience so all dogs must show no fear or aggression towards people or other dogs.

Required for all classes: Up to date shot records, registration form and full payment prior to class. A minimum of 2 students must sign up for classes to take place. All dogs are required to be in a harness or collar and on a 6-foot leash during class. No retractable leashes are allowed. Avoid feeding your dog before training. A hungry dog is a good dog!
