Five Types of Dog Training

Before starting out, you should know your dog trainig options.

That’s because nowadays, you can find numerous types of training which are different in price as well as different in what they have to offer.

Here, I will share with you FOUR types of dog training:


The first type of dog training is known as puppy preschool. This is a dog training course meant for puppies that are about 6 weeks to 5 months old. These puppy preschool classes generally last for no more than 6 to 8 weeks.

In these training sessions, your puppy is essentially taught how to socialize with people and as well as other puppies.

Here your puppy also begins to learn how to sit down, stay at a place, and how to come.


The second type of dog training course is meant for the dogs that are at least 5 months old. This type of dog training is known as the basic dog training. The duration of these classes is usually about 8 to 10 weeks.

This is the basic course, where your dog is taught the art of walking properly on a leash, sitting, staying, coming and heeling.


The third type of dog training course is known as the intermediate dog training. This dog training aims at teaching the dog mostly the same things that are taught in the basic training course, in a more detailed form.

Here the dog is trained to stay for a longer span of time, and is also taught to follow the orders given by other people.

This training generally lasts for about 8 to 10 weeks, and is meant for those that are no less than 5 months old.

It is essential for the dog to have completed its basic dog training course, or to be accustomed to the basic commands that could have been taught by the owner.


The next type of training course is known as the advanced dog training course. Here, once again, the course is quite similar to its previous one, ie. the intermediate dog training course, except for the fact that this time it is more detailed. Here, the dog is taught how to sit even without you in the view.

This training course is about 8 to 10 weeks long, and is meant for those that have completed their intermediate training. Here, they are also trained to walk beside their owners without a leash. Moreover, it gradually prepares the dog to take the Canine Good Citizen training course.


The Canine Good Citizen training for dogs is the last course. To pass this course, your dog will be taught the 10 necessary aspects.

This course is strictly meant for those dogs that have completed all the previous courses. The test is quite tough and can only be passed if the dog is really well behaved. Depending on whether your dog can pass, the course can last for several weeks.


Well… the above are the five types of dog training classifications.

With the above in mind, now you can select the dog training option best suited for your dog. However, you should also seek the consensus of your local dog training instructors for their opinion. Many trainers consult for free.

So now you should be at least a step closer to training your dog formally!

Best of luck :)

    The concept of your five level training is really wonderful. I am responding to it from India. In the village background of my place people do not give such care for dogs and animals. Dogs being amazingly friendly, how trustworthy companions they could become through proper training! It always surprises me. Are your five levels of training time tested?And have been developed over such reliable research and experience? Please do not misunderstand me; I have no intention of questioning the expertise of you but has full appreciation for your initiative for this cause.
    Here we mainly see well trained dogs by police department for their various uses in the investigation.
    I really appreciate each one of these site readers for the importance they give up on such wonderful friends of each one of us.
    Dear friend, wish you all success in your endeavour to help others and their pets. Best wishes!

    i have two german shepherds, a 7 month old female called BO and a 4 month old Male named Hector. The female doesnt eat at all and is visibly thin. The smaller dog has also started eating less now. The smaller dog now weighs around 21kgs. I stay alone and leave for work in the morning and return after around 9hrs. I leave food in their bowl…most of the times, the food is left untouched. They are still on royal canine puppy starter..i have a big terrace in my flat and they play there as well as use that place for relieving themselves…pls advise…
