Today is graduation in Timber's OB class. In a week, Intermediate classes begin. So, after class last week I asked the trainer what we would be learning in Intermediate and she said "basically what we learned here, but getting it all down to a science".

Let me back up and say that I had high intentions to keep Timber involved in all the classes. Everything they had to offer.

But now that I know what intermediate class will be, Im kind of backing out. One because of the money (although its not about the money) and two because I know I can reinforce everything we've learned at home. Like Im thinking " I dont need to pay for a class to do that".

Timber gets walked two miles a day and on the weekends I take him to places where he is exposed to other dogs and new people. Sometimes we work really good on training at home and other times, I dont have a lot of time. Ive got three kids who keep me pretty busy.

So, whats your opinion on the intermediate class. Do you think its still vital in its own way?
Enlighten me. :)

I also wanted to add:

Should we maybe even consider private classes for things I DONT know how to address?

I just liked the fact that Timber was around other dogs in regular classes. However, he is more focused on them and barking here and there at them than paying attention to class. LOL
He does really good at home. On a walk, at a park or just outside. But put him around all those other dogs...especially the little ones.....and Timber acts like he hasnt learned a whole lot. LOL

I just wanted to say that Im going to take ya'lls advice.
In our graduation class today we practiced going through tunnels and all that kind of fun stuff. That was the first we had done.
However, towards the end of class the trainer had a lady and her Rottie there to "show" us what will be involved in Intermediate class.
The dog did perfect heels, downs and sits and turns. Its exactly what I DO want Timber to learn right now. So, perfect!!! Plus I love the attention the dog was giving her owner. I love to see that.
Thanks Everyone. I knew there was a reason I come here for answers! ;)
