There are 6 levels of training from baby pups to Open standard. As you and your dog's training progresses when the trainer considers you are ready to move to the next level, you will be put forward for Assessment. On passing that Assessment you will proceed to the next level.
The training days are an excellent opportunity to check the skills you and your dog are developing are going in the right direction. It is vital that you train using the Curriculum available for download in the Training link above. As you are no doubt aware with HPR breeds, what you put into your dog in terms of time and effort is what you get out!
