So just to give you a bit of an idea - Levels is a free self paced system of positive dog training developed by Sue Ailsby in Canada. What makes it a little different is that things are taught in a certain order to take your dog to just before service or competition level training.
You can be as thorough or relaxed about it as you want. For example Sit can just mean dog is able to Sit or the extended versions add much more difficulty such as Sit is not considered complete until they can sit with you in any body position, sit on various objects/surfaces, sit in public with low distraction...[I do all the extended with my guys]
I have attached a copy of the Level 1 materials I made when I was still calling my business Desperado Pets - but you'll get the idea. I plan on remaking them for Pawtential.
To pass a Level you can simply decide you have done enough work and move on - or you can video it and submit it to the group or in my case I have a group of people who are working it together and we share with each other and in class I grade the criteria in an exam format if they want.
So for example J3 - Basic [still working on extended]:
Come - The dog must play the Come Game between the handler and a friend or stranger standing 20’ apart. [EASY PASS]
Down - The dog must Down from a Sit or Stand with no more than two cues ‐ hand and
voice, voice and body language, two voice cues. It is not necessary for the dog to stay
in the Down position, simply to lie down. [1/2 WAY - I STILL WANT MORE RELIABILITY]
Sit - The dog must Sit from standing position on one cue only (may be a voice OR a hand
cue, but not both, and no extra body language from the handler). The handler may use the dog’s name to get her attention before starting. [EASY PASS]
Touch - The dog must deliberately touch the handler’s hand with her nose on only
one voice cue. The hand in position is, naturally, a second, allowable cue. [PASS]
Leave It/Zen - The dog must stay away from a treat in the handler’s hand for 5 seconds. There can be only one voice cue, which will be given before the hand is presented. [3/4 - STILL GETTING RID OF THE INITIAL HAND MUGGING]
Does that help?
