For those of you who have taken this, what sort of things does it consist of? Brief and cryptic message on my machine said "......work on attention and distractions."

Just trying to get an idea of what to expect as we potentially have a class booked in January.

I think this differs by trainer/company. Judging by the message you received, I would say you're going to be working on distractions (eg. food in their path, other dogs/people coming in the opposite direction, etc...).

If you use the command like look at me! I would use that for attention and for distrations exactly like the others have said...What I used to try was putting my boy in a sit and walking away....around the ring or something like that....It is soo much fun isn't it!

A couple of more sessions and Penny will have completed level 2 obedience. Where we go, this level consists of perfecting level one off leash (also adding stand/stays) while using distractions such as other dogs and people within close proximity.
