Teach the Leash Clinic 

Leash Solutions for owners, trainers, dog walkers and more!
In one short day, your leash walking frustrations can turn into a serene walk in the park. Loose leash walking is the bane of many owner’s experiences with their dog. The same goes for professionals who work with these dogs. It’s frustrating, and even dangerous. It’s such a serious problem, many owners give up and relinquish their dogs to shelters.

The reason owners struggle is because loose leash walking is not a simple behavior. There is a dynamic of multiple behaviors going on and those need to be understood before the dog will willingly walk on a loose leash.

If you’re a trainer or owner who struggles with dogs pulling on leash, you know some dogs make it an art form. To that end, many “tools” have been marketed to “fix” the problem – prong collars, choke collars, head halters, and more. But hiding the problem behind a tool that doesn’t solve the problem. Let’s end the struggle together!

This seminar will show you how to train dogs to walk nicely on a leash without any tools other than a relationship, some food, toys and play.

Perfect for all level trainers, dog walkers, pet sitters, vet staff, and of course – pet owners!

$40.00 for auditors

Saturday, May 18, 2019 – Training the Whistle Recall
9 am to noon
“COME!” The one word that leaves all dog owners anxious and frustrated. Will your dog hear you? Will they ignore you? Millions of owners dread the battle to bring their dogs inside, catch their dogs when they get loose, and secretly dream of off-leash walks at the beach or on the hiking trail. A recall is a behavior that in an emergency, could mean life or death for your pet . Why gamble? Why not have the control and freedom you’ve always wanted.

This seminar will show you how to train a rock solid recall – with distractions! We’ll work on building a reinforcement history, a very strong Conditioned Response, and finish with a dog who won’t leave your side.

This seminar is for ALL breeds. Really!

A life changing and life saving skill;

If you or your student has poisoned your dog’s “Come” cue, the whistle is a great alternative
If the dog gets lost, the whistle sound travels much farther than a verbal recall
The whistle can be heard over nature’s sounds – surf, thunder, rain, etc., and even man-made sounds like a generator, loud trucks, etc.
The whistle is never annoyed, never angry, never scared or panicked; It sounds the same every time
If you and your students work the program thoroughly, thoughtfully, and diligently, you’ll have the recall of your dreams!

Attendees: This is a working seminar, so the more the merrier! It is geared toward everyone – pet owner and trainer alike. All of my working seminars, are just that – working. I rotate dogs all day long and give them a rest in between so they (and their owners) can process what they just learned. Auditors are welcome!
