Loving Leash Walking

Loving leash walking

This is a fun one day, two hour workshop for you and your dog. Does your dog pull on leash? Is it frustrating to take your dog for a walk? Do you sometimes leave your dog at home rather than bring him along because his leash pulling makes it too hard, too much work, and not enough fun for anyone?

Learn how you and your dog can discover the joys of walking together! Walking sedately side by side isn't a natural canine behavior but we've lots of techniques that will help you and your canine buddy get in sync on your walks. As with all Dakin training, we will use positive approaches to achieve your goals. You will learn a variety of techniques to start to strengthen your dog's good leash walking and fortify your teaching skills.

This workshop is open to dogs of all ages who have some basic training skills and who are dog and human friendly. Please bring a slightly hungry dog who has had some exercise prior to class. Bring lots of tiny, soft, and smelly treats for your dog and your regular six foot leash. This workshop will be held outdoors, weather permitting. If the weather isn't cooperating, we'll move indoors.

This workshop is $45.00. Date TBA.
