This intermediate-level training course is tailored for dogs that weigh 20 pounds or less. For graduates of Just the Small Basics or equivalent, this class is designed to hone and polish your dog's obedience through fun training exercises. You will improve your dog's sit, down, stay, heel, and come when called, and learn "leave it." You will also learn 'go to a settle mat' and fun confidence-building tricks.
