  • APDT C.L.A.S.S. program

    This is a great program, though I don't think APDT has done a good job advertising it!

    The PDF gives a lot more details, including the actual tests starting on page 38. I really like how the tests are designed, it really is real life skills. Walking on a loose leash while handler holds a cup of coffee or a large package, prolonged eye contact, waiting for command to get in and out of a car, waiting at doors, not just stay, but "settle", leave its, take and drop.

    Even if you don't take the actual test, this is a great guide for what behaviors to teach for wonderful manners in a companion dog.

    Yes, I will be testing our guys at some point

    Edit: Better link of the actual test and real life relevance:
