Often our dogs are unable to adjust to time alone without company. This workshop highlights effective protocols and practices to retrain your dog to be left alone and minimizes the stress experienced by you and your dog when you leave the house.
“Loose leash walking” means walk with me while keeping slack in the leash (no pulling). This two-class session provides intensive training and practice time to ensure that your daily walks with your dog are enjoyable and stress free.
Reliable recall means that when you call your dog to come, you are sure she/he will enthusiastically respond. Strong recalls are especially important if you want to allow your dog to run off-leash outside of a fenced yard or dog park. This two-part class will ensure your dog learns to return promptly and reliably in typical situations in their environment.
