Walks shouldn’t be a frustrating experience! In this 4-week course, your dog will learn proper leash manners. Make your walks a pleasure by teaching your dog to walk calmly and politely at your side without pulling, lunging, or barking. No gimmicks, no special tools or collars, no problem. Set your pup up for success by teaching them how you want them behave when out and about.
Behaviours taught include: Loose leash walking, eye contact, check in with me, sit when I stop, at my side, formal heal, on-the-go leave it.
