Walking together, with your dog, on a loose lead is a fantastic feeling! Many dogs find this a challenging skill to learn. My loose lead classes are designed to help you and your dog connect with each other while you walk.
I will teach you skills to help focus your dog, pace changes, directional changes and how to cope with everyday distractions like traffic, joggers, cyclists and other dogs.
My next loose lead walking session is taking place on Mon 24th Aug at 6pm and lasts for 45 mins. The venue is Thompson House Equestrain Centre in Standish. We will be training outside so please dress for the weather on the day.
You will need LOTS of tiny treats in a treat bag that attaches to your belt, a clicker, a leather or webbing lead with a handle (not an extending lead nor a slip lead), a leather or webbing collar (not a chain), you may choose for your dog to wear a harness, this is also fine. Please also remember to bring poo bags with you as well as water and a bowl to dring from. Each workshop costs £30 which is payable in advance.
These sessions are not suitable for reactive or fearful dogs.
