If your pup has been through Everyday Manners and Life Skills 1, or reliably knows (with one cue): sit, wait for their food bowl, leave it, go to place, loose leash walking (50ft), recall (from 15ft), drop/give/trade items, then Level 2 is just for you!
Continue to enhance the bond between you and your dog as we build upon what we learned in level 1 by adding distance, distraction, or difficulty to those cues, and introduce more skills that well-mannered dogs should have!
Car Manners (getting in and out politely)
Door Manners (no dashing out the door)
Leave it (while walking)
Loose leash walking (near a person)
Wait to be fed (and allow hand near bowl)
Recall (30ft away)
Intro to Emergency Stop (for safety)
Stay/Settle (longer duration)
