The Intermediate class is for students that have completed the Puppy or Beginner Class. The introductory classes give you an understanding of how your dog thinks and learns. We teach you positive reinforcement training methods and give your dog a love for being trained and a set of structured behaviors and skills. The Intermediate class builds on that by developing solid performance and introduces some more advanced behaviors. You will learn how to get your dog to respond and perform despite distractions. As an example, the introduction class will teach your dog to stay in place. The Intermediate class will help you teach your dog to stay when you are a distance from your dog or when a ball bounces by. We will also teach your dog to wait at doorways (instead of bolting through) and to heal by your side.
