Beginner Obedience compel many students to take training one step further.
Intermediate Obedience bridges the gap between just getting started and getting serious about obedience training. This class helps you polish the skills you learned in Beginner class, introduces you to off-leash training, using hand signals, and prepares you for more advanced training. Intermediate class is where the serious fun begins!
The six-week course meets once a week for one hour and fifteen minutes.
We use the clicker training method in our classes, and all classes are taught on that foundation. For that reason, in our experience, dogs who have been home-trained or attended classes elsewhere have a very difficult time "catching up" in our intermediate class. We believe you, your dog, and your training goals will be best served by attending our beginner class first. Feel free to call us at 479.444.0300 for further discussion on this issue.
A very wise therapy dog evaluator once told us, "If someone ever tries to charge you for ‘therapy dog classes', run! Because the training for a therapy dog is obedience training!" And, yes, we do obedience training…LOTS of obedience training. Assuming your dog has the right temperament to become a therapy dog, we can absolutely help you achieve that goal.
Yes we can! We have three AKC-certified CGC evaluators on staff.
