Loose Leash Walking/Recall Class
This is a four week course that will cover BOTH loose leash walking and recall (coming when called). In the first two classes, we will focus on recall and give you the necessary tools to get your dog's attention and encourage them to come to you when you ask. We will use fun games to make the training process enjoyable for both you and your dog.
Are you no longer enjoying walks with your dog? Are you being pulled this way and that? Your walk with your dog is only as good as your technique. Equipment like no pull harnesses, Gentle Leaders and martingale collars are all great tools that are meant to aid in your walks while you and your pup are learning to walk nicely on a leash and to keep your dog safe and comfortable. The loose leash walk technique you will learn in this workshop will take you from training your dog to check in often with you first with little distractions in our training center and then out in a park where we will practice what you've learned in a more distracting environment.
*IMPORTANT! This class is NOT for reactive dogs that are growly towards other people and dogs. This workshop is for dogs that are comfortable in a class environment. If you have a reactive dog, go to our GROWLY DOG page and see if our reactive dog class is right for you.
