Class 3


Class 3


Below are just some of the things you will learn how to teach to your dog.

  • Loose lead walking.
  • Recall off-lead with your dog coming back to sit in front of you.
  • Have your dog stay in the sit position at a distance of 3 metres from you for about 20 seconds before you return to your dog.
  • Have your dog stay in the drop position at a distance of 3 metres from you for about 20 seconds before you return to your dog.
  • The hand signal for getting your dog to stand and drop with you standing in front of them is also introduced.
  • Left and right 90° turns with your dog at heel on a loose lead.
  • Left and right about turns (180° turns) with your dog at heel on a loose lead.
  • Left and right circles (360° turns) continuing forward with your dog at heel on a loose lead.
  • Have your dog stand for patting and touching by the Trainer. Moving around a little is fine as long as your dog isn’t shying away from the Trainer. (Not during COVID-19 restrictions)
  • Finish – your dog returns to the heel position from in front of you by circling around you.
  • Agility equipment use.


To graduate –

  • Recall from 3 metres.
  • Stand for patting and touching by the Trainer with you standing in front facing your dog. (Not during COVID-19 restrictions)
  • Sit/stay.
  • Drop/stay.
