This course teaches dogs and their handlers' basic commands that are needed for all aspects of obedience and good manners. This class is a necessity for future dog activities and a well mannered family pet.
In this level, the focus will be distractions, time and precision. Handlers will work with their dogs on basic commands, but in different positions, situations and some off-lead. New commands will be introduced so that by the completion of this class, handlers will have the required knowledge to begin participation in competition Obedience, Rally or Canine Good Citizen (CGC) certification.
