Group Levels Training
At A Closer Bond, we offer an innovative approach to group training. With our 8-week Group Levels membership, you get the training and support you need to succeed at the pace that is best suited to you, your dog, and your schedule. New dogs are welcome to join our Group Levels Classes on a regular basis!
How it Works
Training classes are held throughout the week. When you and your furry friend are able to successfully complete the criteria of the level, you graduate and move up to the next level! Some teams may spend a few weeks learning and practicing the skills needed to advance and some teams advance quicker to the next level. The best part, if you miss a week, you won't fall behind and if you would like to train more than once a week as you advance through the Levels, that's okay too! You can train twice a week to advance twice as fast. In each class your instructor reviews the criteria necessary for you and your dog to pass to the next level. You'll be training your dog for the majority of the class.
What Level Does My Dog Start At?
You may begin your dog in Levels Classes at the age of 16 weeks. All dogs, regardless of their abilities, begin with Level One and work their way through. For puppies under 16 weeks, we recommend our Puppy Training programs.
When a Level is successfully completed, you are more than welcome to join in on the training class for your current Level and the Level that you most recently completed. For example, if you and your pup have completed Level 1 and have moved onto Level 2, you are free to come to class during any Level 1 or Level 2 time slot. This means you could be training one or two times each week with a professional trainer to really help to set those skills in place.
