Life skills and Obedience Adventure
This course is based around the previous levels but with an emphasis on perfecting all behaviours that have been learnt in a range of different environments. Your dog will be able to perform for you at home and in the community meaning that you will have a dog you are proud to take out in public.
The goal of these higher levels is to get your dog to a point that their behaviour is more reliable with distractions, distance, duration, better response time and the ability to listen reliably without you needing to rely on using rewards to get them to listen to you. This course will be held in a range of different environments which change each week, therefore ensuring your dog can behave reliably in all situations and spaces. By the end of Adventure Class your dog should be completely reliable with their response to listening to you in all circumstances.
If your dog can complete all log-book requirements to the high standard expected by the end of the course, they will become a ABT Advanced Community Canine, enabling you to have your dog recognised for their high level of achievement!
Our Adventure classes are designed to test your dog’s obedience skills in several different distracting environments, whilst also having some fun!
The classes will involve meeting at a different location each week, working on manners and obedience skills in high distraction environments. These locations will include: National Parks, beaches, dog friendly coffee shops & other public areas. Distractions will range from people to dogs and horses to traffic.
The regular locations include but are not limited to:
You will receive the meeting location of each lesson during the week prior to the class. Including additional information about the area, so that you are aware of different distractions that may take place. There may be occasional changes to the location, but we will always provide ample notice.
We will specifically be working on getting your dog to focus on you with these distractions, as well as learning how to walk loosely on a lead, recalls, stay and other exercises. Depending on the class, it will vary in distraction levels and activities.
Classes will run for one hour each week for 5 weeks, at a total cost of $300. Adventure class is available in several different levels: Puppy, beginners, behavioural and Level 4.
