FOCUSED & CONFIDENT LEVEL III

Level Three - This is for dogs that have completed Levels One and Two (some dogs take Levels One and Two multiple times - Different classes mean different dogs and different energy...). In the Level Three Class we take what we have learned and apply it to real life - OUTSIDE life... Yes, we take field trips in our Level Three Class. This is for owners that want the best-of-the-best. I *highly* recommend this class for ALL owners that want to take their dog with them outside, walks, camping, hiking, festivals.... I think every owner-dog team will benefit from these classes!
Prerequisite = F&C Level Two
