Advanced Obedience Class
This class is for the team (owner and dog) that wants to take obedience training to the next level. It will be geared towards AKC Novice obedience competition. We will work together to fine tune what you already know and strive to add many more. This class requires the handler to be more aggressive towards training in both intensity and frequency while ensuring a positive attitude for the team. If you are unwilling to make corrections that affect your dog this is not the class for you. If you will not have the time to train your dog once or twice a day this is not the class for you. Dogs that are aggressive towards people or other dogs will not be allowed in this class. We usually schedule this class for Friday at 700 PM.
