Advanced Obedience Dog Training Classes


 Return to Manners Classes

Advanced Manners is the final step in our Manners series. The course builds on the previous level of obedience, but we now focus on 'field work,' where your dog is taught to work at a distance with hand signals. The distractions are more difficult, most of the class is done off-leash, and you your dog will follow your commands through hand gestures only. Wouldn't you love it if your dog listened to you all the time, whether he could see you or not, whether you have a treat or not, if your back is turned, and even if there is no leash attached?

The course includes:
  • Training skills:  The course continues to build on foundational behaviors (walking without pulling, staying, and so forth) but adds the challenge of executing behaviors off-leash, and at a distance
  • Off-leash socialization:  Each class also includes play time, where the puppies get to run and play with the others off leash. This is important for building their socialization and confidence. The trainer will give you advice about what to allow and watch for during play, and how to correct your puppy's behavior in an effective manner.

Advanced Manners Graduation Day (1:40)

David is a fantastic instructor. We signed up for Advanced Manners right after we graduated from Intermediate with him and couldn't have been happier with our experience.

He is patient, knowledgeable, and does a great job of correcting your training habits while in class. The pace of the class is pretty quick, which we enjoyed--we were able to cover and practice a lot more advanced techniques because of this. We'd definitely recommend this class if you're looking for more training after Intermediate Manners!
