Intermediate Obedience

Intermediate Obedience builds on the commands your dog learned in our introductory-level classes. This five-week course improves your dog’s mastery of the basics, like sit, down, and loose leash walking. Your pup will also learn new skills, such as the “leave it” command, sitting for petting, prolonged stays, and establishing a more reliable recall.

Fees: $150 for general registration; $110 for dogs adopted from PHS; $85 for active PHS volunteers; $110 Arboretum Members; $65 Active Arboretum Volunteers**
