Advanced Class 

**Required Prerequisite: Graduation from our Intermediate Class or Greyhound Only Class

Class Requirements:

  • Student must have completed Trainers Academy's Intermediate or Greyhound Only level class

  • Must pre-register to guarantee a spot in class

  • Flat buckle or martingale collars, and harnesses are allowed

  • Choke chains, pinch/prong collars or shock collars are not allowed in our facility

  • Students must supply Trainers Academy, LLC with current veterinary records including:

    • Bordetella

    • DHPP (+/- Lepto)

    • Rabies

    • Fecal check current within 90 days of the class start date. **NOTE: If your dog is taking medication to treat a parasite/s, they may attend class as long as you bring a copy of proof of treatment provided by your veterinarian.

The Advanced class will help you take your dogs' training to the next level in reliability. Your understanding of the techniques of luring, shaping, and capturing to train behavior will grow as you teach your dog new skills - and continue to perfect many of the behaviors you began working on during Intermediate class, like loose leash walking, stays, and recalls! 


New behaviors such as a foundational nose work game called "find it" (where your dog will use his sense of smell to locate treats hidden in the building), will be introduced. You can also look forward to fun training games in class too, designed to strengthen your dogs responses despite intense distractions, and much, much more...


If you and your dog have graduated our Intermediate class, you're ready for Advanced class. Oh, and don't be intimidated by the word "Advanced"... you're not yet "advanced" when you start class - but you and your canine friend sure will be, by the time you graduate!

Advanced class is also  taught using the principles of positive reinforcement, and the clicker method.
