Advanced Off-Leash Training
You and your dog may qualify for this upgrade upon successful completion of the on-leash training mentioned in the Basic Program. You and your dog must be approved in order to enroll in this program. During this program I will train your dog to reliably respond to you off leash.Your dog will stay with me in my home for 10 full days of training, and will be taught to perform all commands mentioned in the Basic Program off leash. Your dog will be able to respond to all commands indoors and outdoors, verbally and with hand signals. This Program includes two private follow-up lessons following the last day that your dog stays with me. It is through these lessons that you will progress toward off-leash control. Your follow-up lessons will include indoor and outdoor instruction (as needed). You will be taught verbal skills for training, proper use of commands, and receive instruction on handling your dog off-leash in real world situations. In your follow-up lessons you and your dog will participate in exercises that have a heavy emphasis on diversifying commands around distractions. For this training to be most effective I recommend that you and your dog join us at Boston Red Dog for group lessons.
