Advanced Training - Week 6
Welcome to Week 6. You may have noticed a bit of a theme over the last few weeks. That’s because we are training your dog to stay on one spot without being right with you all the time, on command of course. We want to train your dog to be able to listen to commands and stay in that state, while you even walk away out of sight. And ONLY when you give them your release command, they must stay in that state. Staying focused and remembering that you gave them a command is the purpose of these exercises. Start by watching the videos first, so you know what to expect to accomplish this week. All your lessons are explained in great detail in the Resource File for this week. I highly recommend you print out the Resource File and keep it handy as you perform the commands this week.

Keep practicing these commands all week.
When you feel that your dog is ready you can move on to the Final Exam!
