Advanced Training Classes

Ready to take your dog’s skills to the next level?

Then our Advanced Training class is the perfect option for you!


In our Advanced Training class, your dog will learn:

  • check
    Stronger attention and focus in the presence of “real world” distractions
  • check
    The ability to link multiple commands together in a sequence
  • check
    How to be calmer and more patient in public settings

You will create:

  • check
    More precision and speed with obedience commands like sit, down, stay, come, heel, place, and stand
  • check
    Increased reliability around bigger distractions
  • check
    Strong commands at a greater distance away
  • check
    Longer duration of commands like stay and place

We also teach your dog new behaviors too, like targeting and rear-end awareness, which allow you to move your dog into different positions and can serve as the foundation for new commands and tricks.

Lucy & Desi

“Having had Golden’s over the past 16 years we decided to try Paws and Possibilities for our newest editions, Lucy & Desi,Golden Retriever puppies. Even before our first session was over, I could see them responding to basic commands! Lauren did a great job of instructing us, as the owners to the basics and theory behind dog training. We highly recommend Paws and Possibilities to anyone who wants to train their pets, instead of the pets training the owners!”
~ Dave & Talise

improve Upon your dog’s good manners & etiquette


  • check
    Politely greeting people without jumping, mouthing, or barking
  • check
    Leaving food/“off-limits” items alone, even when in reach
  • check
    Behaving calmly and patiently around other dogs and people

As an added bonus, Advanced Training strengthens the bond between you and your dog. By using clear and effective communication, you can challenge your dog without added stress or confusion. Having a strong relationship with your dog is critical when advancing your dog’s skills and creating consistently reliable obedience.

Who can register for Advanced Training class?
