Our Intermediate Obedience program is a continuation of the Novice Obedience program. This program continues to solidify excellent handler engagement and focus despite numerous different distractions. We continue to build the dog’s ability to make good life decisions by manipulating their environment and heavily reinforcing the behaviours we would like to see repeated.
This program expands basic cues as well as introduces new cues such as ‘front’, ‘place’, and ‘middle’. We also expand on leash walking skills, prolonged stays, and recalls. We begin to teach bed/cot training, leash off manners, and appropriate behaviour during introductions to new people and other dogs. Skills are advanced using fun, interactive games!
We do require all dogs complete our Novice Obedience program before entering the Intermediate program due to our unique training methods and styles.
