Intermediate Skills for Adolescent & Adult Dogs

Increased training challenges

Build on the lessons learned in our Basic Skills class while fine-tuning your skills as a trainer. Using a positive, force-free approach, we will work on improving focus around increased distractions, leash walking past dogs and people, staying calm in a busy environment, and more.  Working as a team, you and your dog will navigate more challenging exercises while having fun! Our trainers will encourage and help you every step of the way.
