Level 3 Training Classes

Level 3 Classes

We bring dogs into our families as companions to share our lives. How much of our lives they can fully and happily share is ultimately determined by their level of training and their habituation to different situations and environments.

Level 3 Classes

Prerequisites for Level 3 Classes: Completion of GAKS Basic Manners course and Level 2 courses, and/or Completion of GAKS Intro to Dog Behavior and Clicker Training Seminar and pre-approval of GAKS training staff.

This six-week class brings it all back together and focuses on fine tuning the behaviors you and your dog have been working on. Key behaviors practiced include working around even greater distractions and proofing behaviors in a variety of situations. Practice will range from dogs learning to remain seated while being petted by individuals in wheelchairs to sitting and downing whenever you ask no matter what you are doing or where you are.

We’ll also begin to combine basic behaviors into more complex chains of behaviors. Whether your intent is a certification as a Therapy dog/handler team or just a wonderful companion, this class will help you and your canine companion achieve your goals.

The fee for this class is $100.
