Having a dog that is a pleasure to walk is, well…a pleasure. We want to help you enjoy your time outdoors with your dog on and off leash.
Walking a dog on a loose leash for a longer distance and duration is one of the most challenging exercises for humans and their dogs.
This clinic will incorporate a lecture in combination with demonstrations of tools and training techniques. The walking behaviors we will cover are Heel, Easy, This Way, Pull, Wait, and Take A Break.
This open forum class focuses on how to correct and inhibit common nuisance behaviors of dogs and how to train the dog for a more desirable behavior. Some of the behaviors we address are pulling on the leash, jumping up, digging, barking, counter surfing, mouthing and play-biting and more. Please join us if you would like help in training your dog to be a better house-mate and companion. Please pre-register.
Held on the 5th Saturday of each eligible month.
