Advanced Obedience

The aim of the Advanced class is to prepare handlers who wish to continue training their dogs to a higher standard. The aim is to prepare handlers to compete at Community Companion Dog (CCD) level, which is the first trial level, and to begin teaching exercises required for higher trial levels. Once you have gained an Advanced Class pass you are eligible for one­-on-­one expert tuition in the trial ring practice area where your skills will be further refined and important “ringcraft” taught by Instructors who are also active triallers. It is a requirement that dogs in this class have achieved Basic 2 level of training, and if the instructor feels that you are not ready just yet, you will be asked to attend a social class for a while to further hone your skills before re-joining the Advanced class.
