Hot Dog Class (Intermediate)

Our Hot Dog Class is designed to help you and your dog build upon the skills learned in the Deputy Dog Class, whilst increasing the level of difficulty.  This is a natural progression of your practical dog training skills and introduces new exercises and increased knowledge and understanding of training methodology.

With the use of classical obedience exercises and a variety of games, our trainers will help you and your dog train to help you both deal with everyday situations and introduce you to off lead control.

At Best Behaviour K9, we aim to offer the very best service to our clients by accepting a maximum of 8 dogs in our Hot Dog classes.  This ensures that they have every opportunity to socialise with other dogs, whilst keeping the class small enough to allow owners to spend as much time as possible training their dogs without them having to sit and wait their turn.

This is not a set course, you can continue coming to these classes as long as you like.  All we ask is that you sign up and pay for 6 classes in advance each time to secure your place.

Once we feel you have advanced through Hot Dog we would recommend that you move up to our next Top Dog class.

Exercises covered during the lessons include:

  • Sit, down and stand using verbal cues only.
  • Heel with and without distraction.
  • Introduction to off lead heel work.
  • Sit, recall through distractions into the present position.
  • Sit and Down Stay for five minutes, five paces away.
  • Stand stay for two minutes, two paces away.
  • Advanced controlled greetings.
  • Stop on recall.
  • Sit or down stay for five minutes plus 30 seconds out of sight.

This list of exercises is not exhaustive and a variety of additional exercises may be included in the session at the trainer’s discretion. During these classes, emphasis is placed on working around distractions. Introduction of group or individual games or activities during these sessions help make the training fun and interesting.


Our Hot Dog Class is designed to help you and your dog build upon the skills learnt in the Deputy Dog Classes and to develop more advanced training skills.  For further advancement of your training check out our Top Dog Classes.
