Level 2 obedience

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