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.
