Dog Training Classes - Intermediate
NYOC Dog Training
Dog Training, obedience training
This class is a continuation of the skills taught at previous levels. Although geared towards formal obedience training, this class will help all handlers extend their training.
Exercises in the class help prepare you and your dog for the Companion Dog (CD) title. This is the first major obedience title for handler/dog teams.
Formal obedience is taught. Formal hand signals are used. Major focus for this level is attention to minor details, timing, and the handler’s body language. Major distractions will be used including other dogs, people, food, noise, etc.
The key behaviours taught in this class are:
Proper on and off leash heeling
Proper figure eight turns while maintaining a proper heel position
Standing while examined by other people
Off leash recalls from at least 40 feet with a formal finish
Sit with stay for at least 1 minutes
Down with stay for at least 3 minutes.
* Prerequisite: successful completion of Beginners II
