Let's Train offers the most flexible group training classes available known as "Levels Training." Levels obedience training is a group program offering unlimited training sessions during the period you are enrolled.
Levels Obedience Training classes are membership-based, where you enroll for a specific time period. During your enrollment period, you attend as many of our drop-in style classes as needed. Classes are separated into levels, with each level more advanced than the previous. You must meet specific criteria to advance to the next level. Levels classes provide incredible flexibility for dog owners! Check our schedule to see when each level has sessions offered.
At first glance, many people feel the cost of levels classes is high. Let's do a quick comparison to understand it is actually less costly than traditional fixed-length classes; while offering much greater flexibility to attend classes.
A fixed-length class is 6 weeks long, meeting once a week, and costs $150. That works out to $25 per session. Also, you are limited as to when you can come to class. If you can't make a session, it is difficult to find a make-up class, if at all possible. So, you just might miss out!
A 2 month membership in levels classes has a minimum of 4 sessions a week that you can choose to attend, and more as you advance in levels. In 2 months you could choose to attend at least 32 classes. Membership is $280, so cost per session is $8.75. Additionally, you have incredible flexibility as to when you attend classes. You are not stuck coming to class on the same day and time each week.
One big drawback of fixed-length classes is that the class advances at a fixed pace. That means, dogs that are having difficulty will feel like they are being left behind and dogs that are doing well feel like they are being held back.
Levels classes allow you to advance at your own pace. Dogs that need more time at beginning behaviors can take that time. Timid dogs will also require more time at the beginning levels. Dogs that catch on quickly, can move ahead when ready and not have to wait.
There are specific requirements that need to be met at each level before the student can be graduated to the next level of training. Below is a description of each level and the requirements to graduate to the next level.
Teaches Impulse Control, Name Recognition, Attention, Sit, Down, and Stay around minor distractions. We also work on common problem behaviors.
