Life Skills Level 2 & 3 Subscription

After laying the groundwork for core skills learned in our eight-week consecutive class group course (Level 1), teams transition into Level 2 and then Level 3 to continue advancing their performance and receive more direct coaching. Level 2 & 3 are self-paced, meaning there is no set date for completion. Handler-dog teams move into Level 3 once they have demonstrated their skills are ready to be worked on in more advanced situations found in Level 3.

 

Our subscription model for these two courses is what makes it possible to offer clients a group class learning environment without the pressure of a looming end date impacting real progress. Each team progresses in their training journey at different rates because resources like the time and energy required to work on these skills are finite. We all have differing levels of interest, experience, and availability when it comes to dog training and that's ok! The program is designed to be flexible and fun in order to help encourage participants to keep progressing their skills so that they can get the most out of their training investment.

To register for Life Skills Level 2 & 3, clients purchase a Life Skills subscription* which automatically renews every month for as long as you wish to remain in the program. There is a max participation rate of 6 teams per class with one to two opportunities to attend each week (reservations are required). In Level 2, all teams receive a copy of our Life Skills Ultimutt Checklist at their first class. Each session the trainer will use the participant checklists of those in attendance to determine which skills and activities will be covered. Skills are marked as ready on a team's checklist once they are demonstrated to be strong enough to move into Level 3 where all classes take place at various locations in and around Calgary.

*Completion of Life Skills Level 1 through Raising Fido is required before purchasing a Life Skills subscription and joining Level 2.
