The BOOK of TRAINING LEVELS



This is the first incarnation of the Training Levels, written in 2000, specifically for my dogsport competition students. They have been rewritten in 2010 for pet, working, and dogsport trainers. The new Training Levels books are available here.

Start by reading the Introduction, then move on to Level One behaviours. Teach the behaviours and test whenever you think your dog can pass. Try not to make things more difficult than they're written - there is, for instance, no duration required on the Sit in Level One. Life gets complicated fast enough, and the reason for the Levels is to provide early and continuing success to teacher AND student. Welcome!
