APDT Progress Class

APDT Progress Class

The Association of Pet Dog Trainers APDT Progress Class is the next level in training for your dog after passing the APDT Foundation Class. (If your dog hasn’t gained their bronze medal yet please book in for a Foundation course instead.)

As with all our classes there are a maximum of four dogs per class meaning you get lots of 1-2-1 help during the course.

What the course covers

We continue work started at lower levels of training, increasing distractions, and asking for higher levels of self control with:

  • Lead walking
  • Recall
  • Leave
  • Door work
  • Wait

As well as adding in brand new behaviours such as:

  • New tricks
  • Send away
  • Scent work
  • Retrieves

This course asks for a really high level of understanding from you and your dog. The levels required are much higher than that for the Foundation class. We start all behaviours in class but, as with all training, you will need to practice at home to get to the required level in for the assessment.

During this course we really focus on your understanding of the science behind training so that your ability as a trainer rapidly increases! We want you to know how to take these training methods and apply them to elsewhere in your dog’s life!

Week six is an assessment week where dogs will be tested to see if they pass the national curriculum at this level. As always this is relaxed and you can ask questions throughout. Many people need to sit this course twice before passing as there are lots of new behaviours and games introduced.

APDT Progress Class

The details

All courses are for six classes lasting one hour each

Written notes will be emailed out following each class detailing the behaviours taught

Please bring treats (high and low value), a bed, a toy and a chew with your dog.

And as always no equipment which tightens or hurts your dog in any way.

Multiple family members are always welcome to attend training classes including children, as long as they don’t interrupt other the other dogs’ training and are supervised at all times.

  1. Simmone Smith

    We have just completed the APDT progress,silver award, and thoroughly enjoyed the six weeks,and have gained so much knowledge that we will continue to use as we progress,and try other courses available with Katie and Ian.They make you feel so welcome,the class sizes are small so everyone gets plenty of time and it’s great value.Dont be put off if you have never done this before as you are guided calmly through each step.
