This class is designed to help you reach YOUR goals and develop your Perfect Family Dog.
In our Basic Obedience Level 2 class, you will build on the foundation behaviors your dog learned in Basic Obedience Level 1.
You will learn new behaviors including Heel, Go to Mat and Stay, Sit (from a distance), Down (from a distance), how to increase your dog’s attention span and more.
You will also learn to reward without using food, work under added distraction and create a faster, more reliable response to your requests.
This class is a must for those who are interested in Therapy Dog certification or Canine Good Citizen certification. It is also a great refresher for those who’ve completed Basic Obedience training in the past, but would like to improve on their skills.
Please Note: If you have taken Obedience classes with another training facility, we require that you take our Orientation Class before starting this course. You will register for THIS course and your first lesson will be our Orientation on Wednesday evenings at 7:30 pm. It’s important that we have the opportunity to insure that you are enrolling in the right Pack of Paws course. If you cannot make the orientation due to your schedule, please call our office and Ashley will help you.
