Class two 3pm-4pm

Further handling and socialising begin this class, along with progression to more difficult levels of the basic sit, come and down commands.


More distractions are used and the exercise positions are held for longer. A new exercise of this class is to get the dog to get back to the starting position for the next exercise, which is important for the refining of exercises in higher classes. Heeling is introduced as an extension of the controlled walk and the stand exercise is introduced.
