Mold Your Canine into a Reliable, Faithful Companion Dog

Our Super Dog advanced obedience training program is a six week class open to any dog that is at least 16 weeks old, current on vaccinations, in good health, and examined regularly by a veterinarian. This class is a continuation of the beginning level Family Dog beginning obedience. It emphasizes longer duration of the commands and more focused attention on the handler from the dog. Your dog will begin off-leash work in this level and some formal commands are introduced as well. Methods of positive reinforcement make learning fun for you and your dog.

After completion of the program, your dog will receive a certificate of achievement to verify that they've received advanced obedience training. Class size is restricted so that more individual attention can be given and as a result, progress generally occurs quickly. The following commands are taught in the advanced level:

  • Heel with U-Turn
  • Wait
  • Sit-stay with distractions
  • Stand-stay with distractions
  • Down-stay with distractions
  • Thirty second sit-stays
  • Thirty second down-stays
  • Thirty second stand-stays
  • Attention getting during distractions
  • Sit for exam
  • Stand for exam
  • Doggie push-ups
  • Come-fore
  • The finish left
  • The finish right
  • Moving down
  • Moving sit
  • Greetings with your dog

Client Testimonials

"As the founder and photographer for Pet Photos portrait studio in Lombard, IL, I have the great pleasure of meeting and photographing many wonderful families and their gorgeous pets. Some of the most memorable photo sessions are of dogs who take obedience, skills and advanced training classes at The Fine Canine training center in Elmhurst.

The dogs that train with Monica at The Fine Canine display a noticeable calm confidence, a willingness to please, and a strong bond with their owner - that has no doubt taken lots of hard work and commitment to achieve. I have also selected several of the dogs trained by Monica to model for commercial projects. Thanks Monica - keep up the great work!"
