Intermediate Obedience Training

Keeping the Dog and Handler in Top Mental Shape

The Dog Obedience Classes-Intermediate Obedience Training is for dogs that are 6 months or older and can respond to commands learned in Puppy Training, in Basic Obedience Training (Beginner Training) or Comparable Skill Level including Sit, Stay, Com, Wait for barriers, and Basic Leash Training.

This 5-week class builds on the dog basic obedience course and continues to strengthen the training your dog has already received. We will focus on the following basic skills with added requirements of distraction, duration, and distance:

  • Sit, Down, Stay
  • Loose Leash Walking
  • Go to Place
  • Come When Called
  • Polite Greetings

The training will enable the handler and the dog to do these behaviors and progressively challenging situations, including:

  • Longer Period of Time
  • High-Level Distractions
  • More Distance

The dog and the handler will perform the behaviors in more complex situations and gain reliability, consistency and confidence.

Why Our Clients Love Us

K9U is great. They offer classes as well as day camp /sitting services. The size of the location is pretty impressive, as they have a large indoor and outdoor areas for dogs to play. (They even pick up and drop off your dog.). The staff and trainers are very friendly and extremely effective.James J.
K9 University is great. We’ve been going there for 7 and a half years. We’ve done training, we’ve done agility, we’ve done boarding and we’ve done daycare. The only thing we haven’t done is a drop off and pick up. My dog is kind of a nut and they deal with her well. Debbie W.
My dog has experienced everything at K9U: daycare, classes and boarding. When he is either picked up by the K9U van or dropped off his tail is wagging like crazy. When I pick him up he is happy to see me, goes outside to relieve himself and then pulls to go back in. Jane F.
