 Beginning Novice Obedience

This class is the next level after Advanced or Level II. In this class, handlers will work on executing exercises from a distance of 10 to 15 feet for the long sits and downs; as well as the recall. We will begin preparing dogs for off leash work (working towards that goal, not just automatically taking the leash off, and this decision is up to the handler). This class is perfect for the dog that has pretty much mastered the advanced class. We will be introducing exercises that are in the American Kennel Club Beginning Novice Exercises.
