Intermediate Dog Obedience
with John Palange
Intermediate dog obedience classes focus on strengthening basic obedience skills and introducing more complex exercises. Refining of previously learned commands, such as increasing the duration of the “stay” or moving out of sight during a “down” exercise are also included. Trick training is another facet of intermediate obedience, and tricks, such as rolling over or choosing the right toy from a pile, are easier to teach once your dog has a handle on basic obedience skills. Proof of rabies vaccination must be submitted to Adult Ed office prior to first class. You will need a six-foot leash and an appropriate training collar. John Palange has trained dogs professionally at K-9 Training Center for over 41 years, with other trainers often referring their most “challenging” dogs to him. He specializes in obedience and problem behavior. Check out his website at www.palangedogtraining.com.
