Basic Class Level II
Basic Class Level II has a well-rounded curriculum designed to continue you and your dog's training education. We will continue to build on the commands in Level I by "proofing" them for use in public situations, add new and more advanced obedience commands, and introduce real life rewards to wean off of treats. We cover sit, down, stay at levels beyond introduction, mental games and tricks, as well as stand and wait commands. Two class sessions will meet in public locations so as to introduce the pups to training with real life distractions (see "Class Schedule" below for details).
Pups under 1 year of age will have the opportunity to earn their AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy title on graduation night.
2SpeakDog encourages attendance by the whole family. If you have young children, we ask that two adults attend class when possible.
Please Note: If you are interested in training two or more dogs, whether they are litter mates or just house mates, please sign them up for classes or workshops individually. We do not recommend having both dogs in the same class, as they will be more successful building confidence on their own, learning to rely on you, instead of their pack mates.
