Gold Level


Gold Level

Who it is for

Gold level is for dogs who have completed Silver level, as it builds on the behaviours already learned.

What is covered

Gold level adds to your understanding and skills and allows dogs and their guardians to truly develop as a partnership. We strongly recommend all students continue to Gold to be satisfied that they have attained a proficient level of training.

At the conclusion of Gold, students have the option to undertake an evaluation to earn their Level 3 Pet Dog Ambassador certification.

Course length

Our 9 week course contains 7 weeks of new learning and 2 revision weeks. This allows for the occasional bad weather, when class may be cancelled.

How to complete

Each level requires dogs and guardians to ‘graduate’. This means that certain criteria need to be met before moving on to the next level.
