Levels: A Skills-Based Approach to Training Classes

A New Leash on Life’s training classes are arranged into skills-based levels to allow students to achieve their individual training goals at their own pace, progress when their dog is ready, and work on a flexible schedule to practice as often as they would like. Unlike traditional 4-6 week classes, Levels training is designed to keep students engaged and making constant progress toward their training goals.

Getting Started

All new students must take the Intro class (click HERE to register) and begin in Level 1 for the first week orientation; all continuing students (click HERE to register) will begin in Level 2 for the first week to asses their current skills and training goals. 

Class Structure

In each class, trainers will present new skills, provide challenges and courses to build current skills, and facilitate games to encourage teamwork. 

Moving to Next Level

Instructors will continually assess the skills of each dog and  invite students to begin the next level as soon as their dog demonstrates mastery of the skills required. Students can progress to the next level at any time during the month.  In this way, every student can progress at their own pace and will stay challenged and engaged in every class. 

Flexible Scheduling

Students are welcome to attend classes at or below their Level on any day or time that suits them and as many times each week as they would like. Since classes are not consecutive, students are welcome to switch between days of the week at any time.

Enrollment Packages

Levels training is paid for by month with packages available at a discounted rate for extended training. During holiday months when training classes are paused for a week, an additional week will be included to always allow for 4 full weeks of instruction. Payment is due at the Intro Class by card, cash, or check. Packages can be paid monthly and scheduled to auto-draft on the first day of each month. Once training has begun, unused portions of packages cannot be refunded. 

  • 1 month – $125/month
  • 2 months – $115/month
  • 4 months – $95/month
  • 6 months – $80/month

After students have completed 6 months of training, all additional classes taken will be offered at $80/month. Puppy class can be included with any Levels package, however, please note, Therapy Dog Certification is $120 and is not able to be included in Levels packages.
