Levels...

LEVEL I - BEGINNERS (for dogs with no or little training, regardless of age)
Not only will your dog learn both the hand signals and verbal commands in a kind and gentle manner commencing at this first level of training, but you will learn to "speak dog" and "read your dog".
In addition to the basic obedience commands such as heel (walking by your left side without pulling you), and automatically sitting when you stop walking, he will also learn stay, down, and come when called with a sit in front of you.
As well, several other issues are addressed including dogs jumping up on you and others as well as on furniture, lunging for good old dried up pizza or chicken bones on the sidewalk (they all love to do this), stealing food from the countertop or table, grabbing or snapping food from your or someone's hand, incessant or annoying barking for attention, the "on" and "off" switch for the dog's attention, etc.
Also, you will learn to curb his "frenzy" as the doorbell rings.

Upon successful completion of this Level, a Diploma of Graduation, bearing the Mother Knows Best Obedience School "Paw Of Approval" is provided.


LEVEL II - NOVICE (for dogs having successfully completed the Level I training course)
Level II is where dog training takes on an entirely new meaning. At this Level, you and your dog will be working primarily on hand signals, both on and off lead, as well as distance training. On hand signals alone, he will gain the confidence (and so will you) to enjoy out-of-sight sit-stays and down-stays, drop on recall (I firmly believe this exercise has saved the lives of many dogs), recall from a distance, heeling off lead, improvement in reliability of stationary commands amid distractions, etc.

Upon successful completion of this Level, a Diploma of Graduation, bearing the Mother Knows Best Obedience School "Paw Of Approval" is provided.


LEVEL III - INTERMEDIATE; LEVEL IV - ADVANCED; AND, LEVEL V - UTILITY
These are advanced levels of training which include the retrieve, retrieve over the high jump, directed jumping (both solid and bar jumps), broad jump, go-out (dog to leave your side), scent discrimination, heel free, etc.

Upon successful completion of each of these Levels, a Diploma of Graduation, bearing the Mother Knows Best Obedience School "Paw Of Approval" is provided.
