The intermediate level of obedience begins to sculpt foundation exercises to a higher level of detail while learning new exercises that keep learning fun and challenging. In addition, it provides dogs and handlers with further skills necessary to begin to participate in Rally Obedience.
The intermediate class teaches both on and off leash exercises:
- formal left and right turns
- healing speed changes
- stand for exam
- formal off leash recalls at a distance and under distraction
- other on and off leash work
The skills taught in the intermediate course are necessary to complete the entry level Rally O course. The Rally O course can be taken concurrently to the Intermediate course or the Intermediate course can be taken by itself.
