Leash Skills

Prerequisite: Completion of Puppy Kindergarten or Basic Manners
*Add this class to a Training Package

This course is for owners and dogs who struggle with their communication when walking on leash and for those owners who want their dog to listen and make good choices in the real world. This is a fast paced course and basic skills are required to be successful, so completion of a previous training class is required for this course.

A few of the critical lessons we cover:

  • Proofing all manners learned in previous classes in a stimulating environment

  • Building on focus and listening skills

  • Loose leash walking – always!

  • Heel work: Teach your dog to focus for you and walk nicely by your side

  • Practice walking towards and past food, dogs, people and other distractions

  • Practice outdoors (weather permitting)

This class concentrates on building your relationship together and perfecting the cues your dog knows so that you can trust your dog’s skills in increasingly distracting environments.
