Intermediate Obedience Course
This course builds on knowledge that is covered off in the puppy beginner course. We start to build on the basics that were learnt as we begin to add in further complexity.
This is done by extending exercises for dogs to pay attention for longer periods of time. We also add in distractions for general obedience exercises and recall. We start to work towards loose leads and off lead work.
Recall – reinforce basic recall from beginner obedience then progressing to intermediate recall practise. Distance, distraction and out of sight.
On lead obedience – working with a loose lead utilising the core skills: sit, down, stand, heel, stays and recalls.
Off lead obedience – starting to work off- lead utilising the core skills: sit, down, stand, heel, stays and recalls.
Socialisation exercises incorporating dogs attention.
Distance work – working away from our dogs and using hand and voice signals to demonstrate control.
Tricks and some fun – pre-agility work, lefts and rights, touches and finishes.
