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!

$65.00 per working team (1 dog and 1 handler)
$40.00 for auditors

*This seminar is not for aggressive or reactive dogs

“Mine” – aka Leave it

Leave it, aka Mine! This 3 hour clinic will get you on the road to getting a very reliable “mine” cue. An invaluable behavior, which can save you a great deal of heartache as well as emergency trips to the vet when your dog races to get the “cookie” you dropped – only it wasn’t a cookie, it was medicine that is toxic for dogs, or a shard of glass. Or drinking out of that stagnant puddle on the trail that can contain bacteria or the puddle in the parking lot that can contain deadly anti-freeze. And let’s not forget the old standby – goose poo!

No more popping and yanking while screaming “LEAVE IT.” This clinic will show you how to teach your dog to have impulse control!
$65.00 per working team (1 dog and 1 handler)
$40.00 for auditors
