This course is suitable for dogs that have attended Puppy or Novice class or other basic dog training. 2 people allowed per dog.
In this course we work on progressing training beyond the basics and we continue to do so through fun games and rewards. Teaching your through game-based training is incredibly powerful because it produces the desire to work with you. When we have this desire, all training becomes much easier.
At this level we will work to make behaviour and skills more reliable in everyday situations, including when there are distractions about.
You will learn training methods to suit your dog to enhance focus and desire to work with you.We mix in some agility equipment and also some basic scent training. You will learn how to implement a calmness protocol and how to help your dog be the best your dog can be by avoiding overfilling their stress bucket.
If your dog is not quite at this stage, one or two private sessions can be arranged to prepare you for this dog class.
