Designed for dogs that have completed either the Puppy or Beginner Foundation courses the Bronze Award class will take you and your dogs skills to the next level. The Bronze award incorporates a wide range of advanced skills including heelwork around other people and dogs.
The APT Bronze Dog Training course is designed to give your dog fresh challenges and skills. We have incorporated a range of elements that are educational and build on the positive habits developed in the earlier courses.
The APT Bronze Training Course is held over six consecutive weeks at both our Mansfield and Brinsley dog training bases.
Control at Doorway
The handler should be able to demonstrate the dog in 'sit' while a door is opened. The handler will then walk through the door before calling the dog through.
Walking Under Control
The handler will demonstrate walking on a lead around other dogs and people.
The dog will learn to demonstrate a 30 second sit with their handler a distance of 3-4 feet away.
A very useful skill the dog will be taught to sit and wait for permission from the handler before eating a dish of food.
Your dog will be taught to sit and wait in position away from the handler before being instructed to return and execute a "finish"
6 Week Bronze Course - £65
At the conclusion of the Bronze training course you and your dog will undertake a practical test including all the elements you have learnt over the 6 weeks. When you successfully complete the Bronze test you will receive a rosette and certificate.
If you wish to continue your training journey you can then move on to the Silver courses.
