Intermediate Obedience Training:
This six week course is for those dogs and owners who have successfully completed a basic obedience course. The handler and dog must be able to work together to achieve reliable sits, downs, stays, recalls, and heeling. In this course, we will prepare each team for the AKC Canine Good Citizen test. We will work heavily on teaching our teams how to work around distractions such as other dogs, loud noises, and unfamiliar objects. We will also continue to work on more advanced commands such as off-leash heeling, finish, stand/stay, and remote commands.

Pace will be based on each dog/owner team as this class is all about your successes! This is class is also a great confidence booster for shy dogs and not so shy dogs alike.
