Advance Urban Obedience
AKC Urban Good Citizen Course
"Excellence requires you not be satisfied."
- Micheal Ellis
Advanced Urban Obedience is designed for dogs who have completed and mastered Urban Obedience and wish to take their skills to the next level. During the 6 weeks course we will work in new locations that test your dog's skills, focus and ability to adapt in the jungle of urban living. We will have an emphasis on prolonging their stay, improving recall amongst distractions, and advancing their leash manners. We will even enjoy coffee or a meal at a dog friendly location requiring your dog to put their best paw forward and show off their manners! At the conclusion of the course, you will be tested through the AKC's Urban Canine Good Citizen as well as the Canine Good Citizen (if not already obtained)
Each class is limited to 4 dogs and their handler to ensure individual attention is received when needed. The course runs for 6 weeks, and we meet once a week for an hour. Sessions are held throughout the Vancouver area.
The cost of the course is $250.
