Course Description

Advanced Training for Man's Best Friend Going Beyond the Basics of Dog Training

Going beyond the basics of sit, come and stay, advanced dog training includes understanding your dog in dog terms. By knowing the traits of your dog's breed and taking full advantage of the attributes of that breed, you will create a fulfilling and fun relationship with your furry friend.

Throughout this course, we'll dive into the advanced world of dog training, first by starting off with a bit of dog training history and breed recognition, which will offer insight to breeds' intelligence. You'll learn the common advanced commands like stop, steady, back up, and give, and then determine whether or not you and Fido are ready for Off-Lead Training, which can be fun and tedious at the same time. We'll explore various methods of advanced training including Clicker Training and the theory of the Monks of New Skete.

After covering methodology, you'll discover what it takes for a dog to develop into a working dog like a seeing eye, police, or search and rescue dog. For those with a competitive nature, we'll discuss different levels of competition including conformation (dog shows), tracking training, and agility. And why would you have a dog if you couldn't teach him some fun tricks and games so you can show him off to your friends and family!

Toward the end of the course you'll learn more about some of the advanced tricks like bow, roll over, through the hoop, the four-footed fax, and wiggle, giggle, freeze! Lastly, if you're still yearning for more information about your dog's breed, where to find competitions or more training information, we'll talk about the major dog clubs and organizations that exist today. Grab a bag of treats, your leash and your pooch, it's time to have some good ol' barkin' fun!
