Intermediate Level 2 Classes 
          Intermediate 2 class is designed for intermediate class graduates who have completed their on and off leash obedience. The curriculum in this class is designed to give you and your dog a leg up before attending the advanced class.  This class will advance your dog’s obedience by challenging their skill sets that they already have from the previous classes. The trainer will go over more unique commands that may be helpful both at home and in the advanced class. There will be lots of new commands and skills that you will teach your dog in this class including stand (progressed from beginner class), more difficult commands on recall, out of sight commands, and some challenging obstacle fun to name a few.  This class is diverse in its participants and there is always something new you can work through and learn not just from the trainer, but from your peers and their dogs! Intermediate 2 class is held every Thursday evening at 7:45 PM. This class is a drop-in class and is ongoing.  You are welcome to attend this class for as long as you wish!
