Obedience courses run for six weeks. The Intermediate course is for all dogs (and owners) that have successfully completed our Novice course. If you and your dog have completed a Novice course with us more than three months ago or at another dog training school elsewhere in South Africa, we require you and your dog to successfully complete a short assessment (test) to ensure that you and your dog are at the same or similar level of obedience as the other Intermediate course participants before you are admitted to the Course.
