Course Overview

Polite Puppy level 2 builds on your foundations from level 1 and slows everything down. We cover a lot of new behaviours in level 1 and this is an opportunity to focus on those that your dog is having issues with or spend time refining what you want from your dog. We put a heavy emphasis on leash work, recall and dealing with distractions throughout. If you are stuck in a position where your dog will not do any work unless there are treats in your hand, this is a perfect course to really start to phase those treats out and make sure you are training rather than bribing your dog.

As your puppy heads for their teens they will start to get more adventurous and will not always listen to direction or look for cues from you. We want to build in reliability to the behaviours your dog already knows. That is, every time you call your dog, they should come back to you regardless of the distractions around you. 

We are not trying to build furry robots, rather make sure that your time together is always polite, safe and most importantly, fun.
