Intermediate Obedience

Intermediate Obedience builds off the foundation of basic. This is a course for people who love working with their dogs -- or who NEED to work with their dog.

This course enables you to develop your training, improve what your have learned and introduce new skills which are both useful and enjoyable for you and your dog.

At the Intermediate level, dogs learn to listen and focus on your commands both up close and from a distance. Attention is placed on developing a 100% reliable recall, perfecting the heel and working with your dog in protected, off-leash areas. Plus special attention is devoted in each class to teach your dog the skills to walk comfortably at your side -- no matter if there is a squirrel "taunting" them or a skate board whizzing by.
