Level 3

“The Ultimate Companion"

Course Details

Whether you want a wonderful companion, or you are training for canine sports, the Ultimate Companion package takes you and your dog to higher levels. The relationship you build with this degree of training is beyond satisfying and the fun is limitless! This level advances your dog's focus and impulse-control and works through higher levels of distractions. Games emphasize the team mentality and turn the work into play so your dog will want to listen to you because it is fun and leads to other wonderful outcomes. You will have the tools you need to work through real-life challenges and have real positive results.

This course is the sequel to Level 1 and Level 2. The two previous levels build your foundation and set the stage for good focus and manners. From there you will begin working on skills that will set you and your dog up for success with a multitude of goals, whether that be participating in a canine sport, outdoor activities, or other recreational or competative activities.

You will build your dog's repertoire of cues to include complex, higher demanding obedience, super fun tricks, and play games that further your dog's skills with focus, confidence, and impulse control to achieve better reliability. Dealing with distractions and the possible undesired reactivity that can come with them are part of this course. Distractions will be reworked to no longer be distractions, and you will have a dog that will listen to you under a larger variety of circumstances that give you the freedom to take the fun to new heights.

  • Topics: Adolescence and all that goes with it - chewing, energy, wandering, reactivity, and much more!
  • Impulse Control Cues: This includes Stay and all the aspects that go along with this cue for reliability, more with Premack, Heel, and fine tuning Walking with Manners
  • Fun Tricks: Train tricks that are developmentally safe and appropriate for your adolescent, and won't disrupt or undermine your hard work in your foundation training.
  • Distractions: I will address distractions specifically and how to turn distractions into rewards for training and how to help you teach your dog to turn away from distractions and focus on you. We work through Stay, Come, Wait, and Walking with Manners specifically with distractions, and go through strategies to help your dog through real-life situations when out and about.
  • Super Fun Conceptual Games: these games primarily address channeling the energy into structured play so that you continue to build better focus, impulse control, reliability, and your relationship to evolve it into an exceptional team.

You get over 60 lessons for training your dog! Plus handouts and a wealth of knowledge to provide you with everything you need to train the ultimate companion. This is a lifetime of fun with your dog!

All cues and games are taught with the theory of reward-based training. No leash pops or hard corrections. Your dog will learn both verbal and visual cues as well as behavior both on the leash and off-leash.

*Proper Socialization is crucial for healthy development. Taking group classes is a helpful way to socialize your puppy as well as practice your cues and games in public places with distractions.

Make sure you look through and decide which course(s) best suit your needs and goals, as well as the time you can commit to the training.

When purchased as a Training Bundle with Levels 1 and 2, the training bundle is a 5-month (150 days) package for phone/video consults. That is support until your DWA puppy is 7-months old!
