Learn how to teach all of the basic commands and life skills and how to apply them in your day-to-day life with your dog. We also tackle specific behavioral problems your dog may be experiencing (excessive jumping & barking, inappropriate chewing, sidewalk vacuuming, etc).
This course builds on the foundations established in the puppy and basic classes. We focus more on distance, duration and distraction. We take what was previously learned and put it into real life scenarios.
This intermediate level course is all about handling skills, public work and confidence building. We use the environment, proper training tools and positive reinforcement to achieve success in a variety of destination locations.
Do you trust your dog to start giving it some freedom? Basic and intermediate are per-requisite courses to this level.
Communication, trust and respect need to already be established to ensure performance of your dog under the highest level of distraction : outdoors.
For dogs over 5 1/2 months and less than 20lbs.
