Description

For Level I: The purpose of this course is to work all the previous commands and skills but now completely off leash. This couse builds a foundation for the dog to obey when off leash in dog parks, dog beaches, and other off leash areas.

For Level II: The purpose of this course is to challenge the handlers skills and to take your dog to a higher training level by incorporating random exercises, more loud, enticing distractions, and tougher exercises and commands.

Spectators

Some commands will be practiced using voice and hand signals.

Level II course has no end. You can continue bringing your dog for as long as desired and/or required. In this course, handlers and dogs work on and off leash to reinforce all the commands previously learned. Dogs are challenged at all levels for them to display a solid personality, behavior, and training. They are exposed to different situations, environments, and exercises in order for handlers to achieve a well-mannered, confident, and well-behaved dog under all situations.
