After successful completion of Level-1, you are encouraged to move on to K9 Manners - CGC Prep if you are wanting to move toward therapy dog, service dog training, and/or passing the CGC test and in Level-4 the UCGC test. Level-3 also helps a sport dog before getting into a sport.
K9 Manners - CGC Prep introduces new ways to increase your dogs arrousal while working on compliance. Classes are always based on the foundation of how to properly handle and effectively communicate with your dog learned in the Level-1 program. The goals are to go deeper into what you personally want and need as your dog's life 24/7/365 is the most important to me.
This class builds on the basics while introducing more and more distractions into the environment.
K9 Manners - CGC Prep class lasts 5 weeks and includes field trips if appropriate for the class.
K9 Manners - CGC Prep welcomes your input. Your feedback becomes priority as classes are geared towards your specific needs and situations as much as possible. Classes are always based on the foundation of how to properly handle and effectively communicate with your dog, because a Schooling Model is essential. In this level-3 program the goals are to go deeper into what you personally want and need with the CGC test in mind.
During this class it will not be unusual for me to give one person more homework in one aspect of their relationship, and another may have a totally different focus. When we come together it is your opportunity to work on your individual relationship with your dog with guidance from me.
