Canadian Kennel Club Standards      

Novice & Open Combined Exercises
Here's where we begin to learn how to handle and teach our dogs precision work.  The Advanced Levels build on the behaviours learned in Basics. For clients who are looking to participate in canine sport activities with their dogs this is great preparation and introduction to the Canadian Kennel Club Obedience Trial Exercises.  Verbal control of your dog while
off-leash is required and will be emphasized.

The NOVICE & OPEN courses are designed to build on the training that has already been taught in Puppy Foundation and Basic Manners. We further the work on the use of verbal cues, hand signals and effective body language.  PLUS we       perfect our Rate of Reinforcement, The 3 D's (Distance, Distraction and Duration).  Games for Obedience fun and Distance work is also introduced.

We take the exercises you've mastered along the way in Basics and the Novice and Open levels and build even further, incorporating more off-leash work and distance control, taking you and your dog to a mentally challenging level.  In order to participate verbal control of your dog at all times is required.
