Building on skills taught in our Beginners 1 class, this class is designed for those who want to continue bonding with their dog through training, as well as handlers who are interested in building a solid foundation for competition obedience and/or other dog sports.
The course is structured around the needs of those in the class. Fun, motivational exercises are used throughout. Specific skills include:
- a continued emphasis on teaching dogs to focus on their handlers, even with distractions
- solid loose-leash walking and an introduction to precision heeling
- teaching dogs to continue to work well in the absence of obvious food lures and constant treats
