Level Two: Intermediate Prep - 4 wks/$100   -   left column below

The Intermediate level Prep class is the next step for all puppies or adult dogs who have completed a group beginning class (Puppy or Headstart) at Diamonds in the Ruff or another positive reward-based training school.  In Prep Class, we build on the foundation you laid in your Level One class.  Prep graduates go on to Level Three: Advanced classes. (Right column)  You will receive a clicker on the first week of class as part of your tuition.

 

What will we learn in Prep class?         More about clicker training

Level Three: Advanced - 4 wks/$95  -   right column below

Once you've completed a Prep class, you may register for one of many fun Advanced level classes in the right column!  From another school?  If you and your dog are clicker savvy, you may start in Advanced, if not, you should begin in the Intermediate Prep class.  Choose by topic. These classes often fill quickly, so register early!  Take advantage of our discount packages.
