A Guide to Dog Training at Dog Breeds Explained

Before starting dog training, it is best that you know your options well.

These days you can find many types of dog training, in many different places.

These trainings vary in price and each one them has something different to offer.

Puppy Preschool

The first type of dog training is known as puppy preschool.

This is a dog training course meant for puppies that are about 6 weeks to 5 months old.

These puppy preschool classes generally last for no more than 6 to 8 weeks.

In these training sessions, your puppy is essentially taught how to socialize with people and as well as other puppies.

Here your puppy also begins to learn how to sit down, stay at a place, and how to come.

Basic Dog Training

The second type of dog training course is meant for the dogs that are at least 5 months old.

This type of dog training is known as the basic dog training. The duration of these classes is usually about 8 to 10 weeks.

This is the basic course, where your dog is taught the art of walking properly on a leash, sitting, staying, coming and heeling.

Intermediate Dog Training

The third type of dog training course is known as the intermediate dog training.

This dog training aims at teaching the dog mostly the same things that are taught in the basic training course, in a more detailed form.

Here the dog is trained to stay for a longer span of time, and is also taught to follow the orders given by other people.

The intermediate dog training generally lasts for about 8 to 10 weeks, and is meant for those that are no less than 5 months old.

It is essential for the dog to have completed its basic dog training course, or to be accustomed to the basic commands that could have been taught by the owner.

Advanced Dog Training

The next type of training course is known as the advanced dog training course.

Here, once again, the course is quite similar to its previous one, i.e., the intermediate dog training course, except for the fact that this time it is more detailed.

Here, the dog is taught how to sit even without you in the view.

This training course is about 8 to 10 weeks long, and is meant for those that have completed their intermediate training.

Here, they are also trained to walk beside their owners without a leash.

Moreover, it gradually prepares the dog to take the Canine Good Citizen training course.

The Canine Good Citizen training for dogs is the last course. To pass this course, your dog will be taught the 10 necessary aspects.

This course is strictly meant for those dogs that have completed all the previous courses.

The test is quite tough and can only be passed if the dog is really well behaved.

Depending on whether your dog can pass, the course can last for several weeks.

Keeping this information in mind, you should be able to decide the dog training course best suited for your dog.

However, you may seek the opinion of your local dog trainers to know more. Many trainers consult for free.

So now you should be at least a step closer to introducing your dog into a training course!
