Loose Leash Walking and Reliable Recall

Learn how to make walks and outings with your dog more enjoyable. Having a dog that pulls on a leash or does not come when called can be frustrating and at times, dangerous. The loose-leash walking exercises in this class will help teach you how to have your dog walk on a leash without pulling. We will also cover the foundation skills for a successful recall, so that your dog learns to tune out distractions and come when you call. 

Requirements: 

  • You and your dog/puppy have completed an Adolescent 1 or Puppy 1 class series
  • Your dog/puppy is up to date on vet-recommended vaccines, including rabies
  •  Front-clip harness like an Easy-Walk, or Halti head collar
  • 15 or 20-foot long training leash
