Continuation Training
   
The Basic Level
The Basic Class is to improve on the behaviours taught in the Puppy Class.  It will continue on with the Social manners in a fun environment. Your dog will learn longer duration and more distance for the Sit and Drop commands. Better focus and be able to work closely with other dogs.
 
Intermediate to Advanced classes 
The Intermediate and Advance classes continue on from the Basic Level and Alpha Dog Training classes.
 
The Advance class have more fun activities and other general training like scent detection, Rally O and some Agility.    Joining as a Member entitles you to reach the Intermediate to Advance Levels which includes regular Fun Days (playing games, Morning Teas and more).   Over the summer and weather permitting we plan trips to the beach as a group or to Navan Park to walk around the lake as a socialisation exercise.
