A staple of Dog Training, walking politely on a leash is a skill that all dogs and their handlers must master. The leash walk is a bonding exercise that improves the dog-human relationship, and it is of course a safety issue for both dog and walker. We also know the dog who walks politely gets longer walks, which is also mutually beneficial to all involved.
Here at The Academy, we provide multiple opportunities for both dog and handler to improve their leash skills. Our Basic Obedience courses, offered in both group class and private lesson formats introduce leash walking protocols, and our Off-Leash and Behavior Modification Training Camps also include leash walking proficiency skills.
For those who seek only an improvement in their dog's leash walking behavior we also offer a stand-alone course, Leash Manners 101, which will solve your issues and get your dog walking by your side calmly and reliably.
The Leash Manners 101 course is a private two session course sequence scheduled over two weeks; the first week introduces the requisite skills and protocols, and after practicing for a week we meet again to fine-tune the experience. Improvement is guaranteed!
Tuition for the 2 week sequence is $195 with corrective collar additional (If Required).
We also offer Bomb-Proof Leash Walking as a part of our K-9 FUNdamentals seminar series. This 3-Week course is offered in a small-group class format at Wagging Tails Pet Resort in Hadley Massachusetts. Tuition for this seminar is $150.
