One of the important things about Merritt’s BUDDIES – Basic Training and Manners class is that the first class in each session is for owners only. No pets. Merritt says she uses this time to explain the goals and techniques used within the class. She brings her dog, Berry, a dainty four year old Siberian Husky as a demonstrator model.  Owners are invited and encouraged to try out their understanding of the training methods using Berry. Not having to worry about the deportment of their own dogs allows the owners to fully engage in the first lesson taught, before bringing their own pet for the remaining classes.
