Intermediate Obedience Training

Just as Basic Obedience is the foundation for the Intermediate Obedience class, this class is the foundation to other advanced training and is a great way to get your pup out on hikes, to the park, and other off-leash places. These new skills will be enjoyable for you as well as your pup, building an everlasting bond.

Continuing with the sit, down and recall commands, these skills become more difficult with the inclusion of distractions. Commands are engaged for increased time duration, as well as, completion while in motion. Also, included in this class is the luring stand command, which helps tremendously during a vet examination or grooming appointment. The beginnings of loose-leash to off-leash heeling, recall with a finish report, and hand signals are also introduced in this class. 

All dogs must have previously completed Basic Obedience training here at Landheim before beginning the Intermediate Obedience class. Dogs that completed Basic Courses in Obedience through other facilities would require an evaluation to determine if your dog is eligible to bypass our Basic Obedience course; we do this to ensure the quality of our training as well as the safety of everyone taking classes with us.
