Description

Leash manners are one of the most difficult things for dog lovers to teach pets. It can be frustrating when dogs pull, lunge or otherwise react to distractions while on leash. 

This course will detail how to use a leash properly in order to ensure students' dogs are successful in the real world. Topics covered include stationary exercises (pre-leash walking), proper leash use, distractions and dog reactivity, and teaching on-leash manners. 

This course not only prepares students to teach dogs leash manners, but also lays foundation for future off-leash control.  

There are no prerequisites for this course, however, students are encouraged to take the course related to training foundation.  No additional materials are needed for this course, only a willingness to learn how to train a dog to walk nicely on a leash.  

This course does not involve the use of harsh techniques or tools such as yelling, jerking on the leash, pinch collars or shock collars.  This course only teaches students positive dog training techniques.  

Students can expect to finish this course in 1-3 months.  This time will vary depending on the progression of individual students and dogs.  

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is well-suited for anyone who walks dogs on-leash, including dog owners, walkers, sitters, rescue organization, etc. This course does not involve the use of tools such as correction collars, therefore this class is not suited for those who would like to use these.
