Loose-Lead Walking Workshop

Loose-lead walkingWe know that one of the biggest concerns for dog owners is getting their pet to walk nicely on the lead. Trying to walk a dog who is pulling and tugging to reach their destination can, at the very least, be frustrating for owners and dogs. At it’s worst, it can be dangerous, especially if you have children or walk your dog near busy roads.

Our Loose-Lead Walking workshop can help!

Date & Time: Saturday 12th December 2015, 12:15 – 2:15
Venue: Milnsbridge, Huddersfield
Cost: £30 per dog and handler team

This workshop will teach you how to train your dog to walk politely next to you without pulling on the lead, using a variety of reward-based methods.

In the past, the accepted wisdom was that to teach a dog to walk without pulling, the dog needed “corrections”, usually from choke-chains, or from sharp tugs on the lead. Sometimes these kind of methods work, but inevitably, it can seriously damage your relationship with your dog, as well as causing physical damage. Modern dog training is based on scientific research and a greater understanding of the canine mind, and allows us to train behaviours like loose-lead walking using the dog’s own motivations and desires.

This workshop is held at our indoor venue, and is suitable for all breeds, sizes, and ages of dog. Even older dogs can learn something new! Please note the first 30 minutes of this workshop will focus on explaining the process of training for owners, and during this time dogs must be left in your car or crated inside the hall.
