Intermediate Obedience Clicker Training Classes
Clicker training is an operant conditioning method that we like to encourage our clients to use in our obedience courses. The clicker is used as a marker of the correct behaviour that our dogs have demonstrated. We shape the dogs behaviour in a kind and gentle way ensuring all dogs are calm and happy whilst they learn. We encourage the use of treats along with the clicker. A clicker will be provided as part of the registration.
This class is suitable for dogs who have completed our novice obedience clicker training course. It is a continuation of the training that you have completed so far.You will be assessed throughout your training class and certificates will be awarded at the end of the six week course for the best “student” for the behaviours listed below:
- Sit, down and stand from a distance – your dog should go into the positions when asked when you are 2 metres away from them
- Heelwork off lead at different speeds – demonstrate your dog walking to heel off lead with changes of speed and direction
- Sit and down in motion – whilst walking your dog off lead to heel you should ask for sit or a down and your dog should maintain the position until you call them to heel
- Come in close – your dog should come in close on your left side and sit beside you
- Stay – your dog must maintain the position you put them in whilst you circle around them for 2 minutes at a minimum of two paces away from you
- Recall outdoors (on a long line) – your dog must return to you on first call or whistle
- Most improved puppy or dog
Places are restricted to 6 per class. Payment is required in advance to guarantee your place.
