Advanced Obedience

In our Advanced Obedience we build on the dog training concepts taught in our Intermediate Obedience classes. We use a positive, motivational obedience system balanced with appropriate correction that utilizes a thorough understanding of the verbal marker system, luring and the basic/intermediate obedience commands.  We strongly encourage coming up through our courses but upon detailed evaluation we may admit dog/handler teams to advanced courses if they can demonstrate understanding of the prerequisite material.  These prerequisites are met by graduating our Basic Obedience course and Intermediate Obedience course or through private instruction and independent work in these topics specific to our methods.  Dogs that require frequent aversives for problem/unwanted behaviors should spend additional time in Basic Obedience.  We will intensively work on focused heeling, sit out of motion, down out of motion, the long down, recall under distraction, the send out, jumps, retrieve, search and more.  We will work in close proximity to other dogs and handlers and teach dogs to ignore these distractions while working.  Handlers will learn to modify reward schedules and how to manage drive to intensify behavior.  Play rewards will become common and for many dogs will completely replace food based rewards in this course. This course may run simultaneously with intermediate obedience with breakout groups by skill level.
