Join us at Annenberg PetSpace for a series of dog training classes. This course is intended for those who completed a beginner level.
About this Event

Wallis Annenberg PetSpace invites you and your dog to join us for our Mutt Manners Intermediate Dog Training Class. These four, one-hour classes are designed for dogs that are comfortable with new dogs and people and want to improve their manners.

Our Certified Professional Dog Trainer, Katie McGuire, will help your four-legged friend learn a host of new tricks and behaviors.

The Mutt Manners Intermediate Class will feature the following lessons:

Introducing distance, duration, and distraction with previously-trained behaviors like Stay and Come When Called
Learn fun new tricks that you can practice with your pet
Perfect loose leash walking skills
Stationing on a bed or place
Introduce the heel position and proper manners for introductions
Preparation and training for real world scenarios
Introduction to exercises similar to those in Canine Good Citizen and Therapy Dog Testing

If your pet completed Mutt Manners Beginner class, a similar beginner group class through another training organization, or has an understanding of beginner-level obedience (sit, down, stay, come when called, leave it, and loose leash walking), then this class is for you! Dogs do not need to have mastered these skills, but should have a basic understanding.

Classes take place outdoors and will be limited to 8 dogs. Each participant will be assigned an individual space to ensure social distancing is possible at all times. Register now to save your spot!

Please adhere to all of the Annenberg PetSpace safety rules to help prevent the spread of Covid-19. Find the list of guidelines below.

Participants' – both pet parents and their dogs – health and safety are our highest priority. This means that all dogs must be up to date on their vaccines. Please bring proof of vaccinations to the first class, or submit via email with your two waivers below.

To save time at check-in, please fill out your and email your dog's vaccination records to

Additionally, please note that this class is designed for dogs who are comfortable with new dogs and people. If your dog is reactive or becomes overexcited around new dogs and people, we suggest you register for a class that can specifically help your pet become calmer around other dogs and environments before joining this session.

Please note the following guidelines and reminders in advance of the class:
• Dog handlers must be 13 years of age or older
• Dog handlers under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult
• There must also be at least one adult present for every child under the age of 13
• There is only one handler allowed per dog. If more than one person is attending with a dog, one person will be designated to participate as the handler and additional attendees will observe
• Dog handlers must wear closed toed shoes and long pants
• Dog handlers must bring a six-foot, non-retractable leash
• Dogs must wear a flat collar, cloth Martingale or harness (no choke chains or prong collars)
• We recommend avoiding giving treats to your dog for a few hours prior to class, and only a light breakfast if necessary- a hungry dog is a motivated learner!
• Please bring plenty of your dog’s favorite treats!

Covid-19 Guidelines for Annenberg PetSpace

During these times, Annenberg PetSpace is implementing additional safety rules and regulations for any guests entering the space.

Please adhere to the following guidelines and processes outlined below:

Guests ages 18 and older must provide a photo ID and proof of full Covid-19 vaccination before entering Annenberg PetSpace

Mutt Manners sessions are offered in our outdoor Barks & Rec space, but to enter the building before or after a class, guests must present proof of full Covid-19 vaccination. More information here.

A face covering/mask must be worn at all times while at the space

Per the City of Los Angeles guidelines, Mayor Eric Garcetti has issued an order requiring Angelenos to wear face coverings when they leave their homes and will be near other people. Face coverings that protect the nose and mouth help stop the spread of the virus and wearing them in public creates a layer of protection.

Face masks must be worn by all guests ages 2 and up, and includes those who have been vaccinated for Covid-19. Masks must be worn in outdoor areas as well.

Please practice safe physical distancing

We ask that guests practice safe physical distancing of at least 6 feet in all settings in and around the space.

Together we can do our part to keep each other safe and healthy during these unprecedented times. We thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
