This 4-week class will give you and your dog the tools to make walking enjoyable. Learn how to walk together with less pulling and better focus. If you’re tired of taking your dog for a walk being a chore, this is your class.
In our class, we will work on leash handling skills, getting your dog getting used to the feeling of loose leash, as well as different tools that we’ll use to help keep your dog’s attention while on walks. We’ll walk outside with other dogs and distractions. We will also learn troubleshooting in case your dog gets overly excited by distractions, and show you tips on how to successfully pass other dogs while walking and how to keep your dog safe! Our Loose Leash training Class will teach your dog to stop pulling you during the walks. It is not a perfect heel which keeps your dog strictly by your side. It allows your dog to sniff and explore the neighborhood as long as you leave slack in his leash.
Note: This class is not meant for a reactive dogs that lunge and bark at approaching people and dogs. If you think your dog may be reactive, please consider taking “Reactive Paws” class instead.
