Intermediate Family Dog Training

Take your training to next level!

Take your training to next level with our Intermediate Training Class. If you’ve taken a Puppy or Beginning level class and have a good start on the basics such as Sit, Down and Come but need to start making your training more “real life ready”, this is the class for you! Basic training is important but it needs to work when things are distracting or when you are at a distance from your dog.

By taking the lessons you’ve previously worked on and advancing those you will be on your way to having a dog come when you are in the “Great Outdoors” or a stay even when the kids are dropping food from the table. We will also introduce distance work. Teach Banjo to sit from 20 feet away or lie down from across the yard. Other cues that will be discussed are polite greetings (no jumping!), leave-it and how to incorporate training into your daily life.

In her words: "I am really fascinated by body language and visual signals as a communication tool for emotions and states of being. Dogs are wonderful at expressing their emotions and intentions through body language so this fit my personal interest! I also really, really like working with people and helping them understand their dog so the conversations between the two species are more clear to both.”
