Intermediate - Doggie Middle School
Does your teenage dog or Sunny Lane Alumni need a little more polish?
If your once well-behaved dog has become sloppy in his behavior, perhaps
he is going though the dreaded Doggie Adolescent period (6 months to 2
years) This 3 week course may be just what you need to get back on
track. This class is offered for socialized dogs, that have been taught
the basics, but need a little more training.
This refresher course will help re-teach the dog and the owner to work together as a team. We will
focus on recall, leash walking, focus and handling techniques while
increasing the human/doggie bond. There will also be fun and surprises
for you and your dog. Your dog wants to come back to school!

older, who need a little refresher and some one-on-one time with their
beloved owners. We all need a little bit of stimulation and excitement
in our lives. We sometime forget that our older trained dogs still loves
work with us and learn new things. We will work with games music and
movement to rekindle that old relationship. You will see a new bounce in
the step or your older best friend.

Advanced - Beyond Basic Training
This class is offered for well-socialized dogs that have completed at
least one obedience class. Your dog will improve existing skills and
learn some new ones through a series of enjoyable, stimulating exercises.
This class focuses on distance, duration, distraction and teamwork. Most
exercises are conducted off-leash and with multiple dogs. Learn advanced
clicker techniques and how to use a target stick. There will be a little
agility, some new tricks and games, a little dancing, and a lot of fun
in this class. Clicker optional, but encouraged.

Private Lessons Troubleshooting
Sometimes private lessons are preferable to training courses. If your
dog has mastered most basic skills, but needs a little help with some
things such as: coming when called, not jumping on people, walking
nicely on the leash, etc., one training session may be all it takes to
correct the problem. Also, if your pooch is dog aggressive, people shy,
or excitable, you may choose private lessons over a training course.
