Graduate Dog Advanced

Labrador Retriever

If you have graduated from one of our Puppy or Super Dog classes OR you have done a beginner obedience class elsewhere and are wanting to continue to advance your dog and continue to shape them into a well rounded citizen, then our TNT Graduate Advanced class is the class for you!  This is a great stepping stone to learn more advanced obedience skills to be able to live peacefully with your dog at home as well as taking him into public areas.  It is also a stepping stone to be able to advance to some of our Speciality classes such as our FUNAgility, Tricks,  Rally and Competition Obedience where a solid obedience base is required.

This series of six weekly classes goes over the basic obedience exercises, walking nicely on leash, focus and attention, recall and adding duration, distance and light distractions to each exercise, how to stay put, and much more! Be prepared to have fun, play learning games and actually enjoy coming to dog training class!

Our Graduate program consists of 6 one-hour in-depth classes conducted by our professional dog trainer and covers everything you need to know to build a strong relationship with your dog and help his/her development of important life skills.

Positive Training Methodology

TNT Training teaches using positive reinforcement and motivational methods. To help your dog understand what we are trying to teach them, we use food rewards. This method of teaching is proven to accelerate the learning process for dogs. The alternative to positive training, is to use compulsion and adversive methods and this type of training is not only old-fashioned and highly outdated, but also produces dogs that work out of fear and not because they “want” to. At TNT we want both yourselves AND your dogs to enjoy the learning and training process.
