Level One is for Puppy Socialization graduates and adult or adolescent dogs that are new to training. The focus of beginner training is to learn everyday basic life skill exercises like sit, down, stay, come, pay attention, walk nicely on leash, leave it and polite greetings. We will also address problem solving and elimination of undesirable behaviours like jumping up and barking. Dogs will learn to focus on their families even in the face of distractions!
Prerequisites: for dogs 17 weeks of age and older; all dogs must be up to date on vaccinations
Cost: $140.00 + GST ($147.00) | 5 weeks
In Level Two, we will continue to work on teaching your dog to walk nicely on leash and to come when they’re called…every time! We will practice these skills outdoors (weather permitting) so we can learn to handle distractions of all kinds. We will learn how to greet people and other dogs without jumping up and practice manners around the dinner table. We’ll also learn some tricks and try out some agility equipment like jumps, tunnels and balance planks!
