Prerequisite: Family Dog 1 or equivalent, or consent of instructor

Family Dog Level 2 is the next level in training with your dog! Have fun building on the basics learned in Family Dog 1. Practice sits, downs, stays with increased durations and higher distractions, and strengthen the skills needed to prepare your dog to pass the Canine Good Citizen test.

If your dog is displaying aggressive behaviors, or you are not sure which class is a good fit for you, please call so we might place your dog in the appropriate class or private training.

Please bring proof of vaccinations the first week of class.

We recommend at minimum a flat or martingale collar with a 6 foot leash. Sometimes we will suggest the addition of head halters or front hook harnesses, If you need a harness we can sell you one after class. Please no choke or pinch collars, or retractable leashes. We have found that good training with comfortable, non-aversive equipment will enable your dog to perform consistently better!
