Pet Dog Ambassador Level 1 (Puppy) Dogs, like people, learn best when they are young. That is why we love to see puppies (four to nine months) reach their first pet dog training goal early. Enroll your puppy into the Pet Dog Ambassador Level! Program. This assessment examines a puppy’s training and education as well as the success of the Guardian to have taught the puppy basic good manners appropriate to the home and the training class.
Pet Dog Ambassador Level 2 (any dog over the age of six months) builds on the work undertaken at Level 1. It is at a level where those who did not undertake Level 1 because they did not fit the age bracket can still have an easy entry into the program. This assessment examines a Level 2 dog’s training and education as well as the success of the Guardian to have taught the dog good manners for the home and in the training class.
Pet Dog Ambassador Level 3 To provide dog Guardians with more advanced knowledge of force-free dog training and Guardian responsibility. The foundation skills assessed in Level 2 are extended and built upon and put into real life situations in Level 3
Pet Dog Ambassador Level 4 build further on the dogs’ and Guardians’ skills, knowledge and ability and culminate in assessments both in real life settings and in the class situation. The aim is to produce a Guardian and dog team who demonstrate their ability to undertake increasingly more complex real life skills in real life situations.
Level 5 (Championship) This level is where everything the dog and Guardian have learned is put to the test in real life settings. There are location options available to help assessors make real life training relevant to their clients. Assessors will be able to create scenarios that may be appropriate to their local surroundings provided they include all of the compulsory exercises and two from the selection of optional exercises.
