This class deals specifically with loose leash walking and heeling.  In this class, you will learn how to train your dog to walk on a leash without pulling.

Walking a dog in New York City can be an especially trying and frustrating experience if your dog does not walk well on a leash.  Whether your dog doesn’t get what a leash is for, your dog thinks the leash is a tool to pull you down the street, your dog is unmotivated to walk with you, you’d just like your walks to be more pleasant, or you’ d like to feel more like a team when walking your dog, this class is a way of doing just that while also getting the benefits of continued socialization and real world distractions.

Through structured loose leash walking and heeling exercises, students will learn how to motivate and engage their dogs to increase their dogs’ focus on them during walks, causing dogs to listen better and move better with their owners.

The exercises used range from simple obedience style loose leash walking exercises to heeling exercises used in competitive obedience and agility, giving students a variety of ways to train their dogs and many tools to fall back on to teach their dogs better leash walking skills.

The class takes place outdoors in our local parks to provide plenty of room to work as well as real-life distractions.

Each round of classes includes 3 sessions where different leash walking skills will be taught.
