Foundation Skills Level 2

Foundation Skills Level 2

You’ve done one round of Foundation Skills class, and your dog can stay, recall, and walk nicely on a leash – when there’s NO distractions.

But, now you want to put these skills to the test – closer and closer to other dogs and people!

Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to:

  • Have your dog sit calmly while you have a chat with your neighbour?
  • Pass another dog on the sidewalk, while your dog remains focused on you?
  • Enjoy time on a patio while your dog settles by your feet?
  • Go for off-leash adventures, and trust you can recall them back to you?

Then, Foundation Skills Level 2 is for you and your dog!

Prerequisites: Taken at least one full round of Foundation Skills at When Hounds Fly

Please note: This class is not appropriate if your dog exhibits excessive fearful or aggressive behaviour. Please see our Behaviour Modification page for information on private lessons to address fear or aggression.

Foundation Skills Level 2 with When Hounds Fly has been such a great experience. Our 11 month old Golden Retriever loves coming to class and responds so well to the teaching.

We left ever more confident she will be able to become the therapy dog we would love her to be. Thank you to all the amazing instructors at When Hounds Fly who have helped us through Puppy Start Right and Foundation Skills Level 1 classes also!
