ADULT DOG EDUCATION & OBEDIENCE

This is a training track for dogs who are beginning/finishing their obedience training as adults.


ADOLESCENT/ADULT 1 (Basic Obedience) formerly Canine Middle School

Adult 1 is a Level 1, basic training class designed to teach you and your dog all the fundamentals of training. Best of all, you'll use positive reinforcement training methods to achieve the results you are looking for. Both you and your dog will graduate with a better understanding of each other! Adult 1 includes: Come when called ~ Pay attention ~ Leave it ~ Wait ~ Polite leash manners ~ Sit/Down/Stand ~ Sit for greetings ~ Go to place

PLEASE NOTE: Adult 1 is a five-week Level 1 course, 50-55 minutes each week, and your dog should attend all classes with you.

COURSE PREREQUISITES:

  • Dog must be over 4.5 months old (feel free to enroll your senior dog since you really can teach an old dog new tricks!)
  • Dog must be dog and people friendly
  • Dog must have proof of current vaccinations

ADOLESCENT/ADULT 2 (Intermediate Obedience) formerly Canine High School

Adult 2 is a Level 2 designed for graduates of Adult 1, Puppy 1, Older Puppy or any other basic, level 1 training class. Behaviors will be refined and improved in Adult 2. Special emphasis will be placed on motivating your dog so you get quicker responses to your commands, better recalls, stays with distractions and walking nicely on a leash. New skills (emergency recall, variations on heeling, distance commands, etc.) will be taught. This class will help keep both you and your dog on track as you train to improve reliability.

PLEASE NOTE: Adult 2 is a five-week, Level 2 course, 50-55 minutes each week, and your dog should attend all classes with you.

COURSE PREREQUISITES:

  • Completion of either Puppy 1, Adolescent/Adult 1, Older Puppy, Small Dog Manners, or equivalent basic obedience class

LEVEL 3 OBEDIENCE

Level 3 Obedience is designed for graduates of an A DOG'S LIFE Adult 2 or Puppy 2 class. This is because A DOG'S LIFE Level 2 classes cover more behaviors than a typical level 2 class at other companies and we want you to be successful in Level 3. (If you think you might qualify even though you have not taken a Level 2 with us, please contact our Director of Training to make that determination.) Level 3 Obedience is designed to sharpen up and proof all those skills learned in our Level 2 classes. New skills, such as responding to commands from a distance and out-of-sight stays, will also be learned.

PLEASE NOTE: Level 3 Obedience is a five-week course, 50- 55 minutes each week, and your dog should attend all classes with you.

COURSE PREREQUISITES:

  • Completion of Adult 2 or Puppy 2 at A DOG'S LIFE
  • Dog must be dog and people friendly
  • Proof of current vaccinations
