This class works on fine tuning all lessons learned in the Beginner/Intermediate courses. All exercises are done on and then progress to off lead. Proper heel position and automatic sits are expected when heeling. Recalls, sits and downs are expanded to be done off lead and with the handler further away. Increased dog attention and teamwork between human and dog are developed and expected at this level.
Students in this class are self-paced and are at different levels of proficiency with their training. The Advanced class can be repeated indefinitely, as more skills are added for each dog and human team as they progress with their training. Some students are just out of beginners, where others are close to being ready for other experiences: therapy dog testing, competing in other sports such as rally, obedience or agility. This class is also intended for those who enjoy a really good relationship with their dog, and a well-behaved and easier to live with dog around the home and when in public.
