2 week stays

 A 2 week stay will put all of the essential foundation commands in place to a basic level, including:

  • Advanced commands: emergency stop, down from a distance, send to bed
  • Recall foundations
  • Loose lead walking
  • Greeting people without jumping up

The 4 week stay further advances the commands taught in the 2 week stay.  Distractions are added, such as other dogs and people, and new locations/environments are introduced to help build a reliable response to commands.
