The course teaches a variety of exercises and games that can be utilized to teach good leash manners to your dog. The time spent walking your dog should be enjoyable for both. If walking is a pleasant experience we hope that your walks will be longer and more frequent, improving the relationship between dog and owner. The class does not dictate the type of walk you take with your dog, that is personal and between you and your dog. Rather, it provides skills to teach your dog a formal heel, with the dog walking beside you and managing a pleasant “sniff walk” where the dog is exploring the environment on leash. This is class is for dogs 5 months and older.
The classes are three weeks in length. Sessions are 30 minutes in length and take place on Wednesday and Thursday evenings in the Joyce Gauthier Behaviour and Training Centre. The cost is only $75 (a $25 cancellation fee applies). Sorry, no refunds if cancellation occurs two weeks or less before classes start.
Note: We do require that dogs attending classes are up to date on their Rabies, Parvo-Distemper, and Bordetella vaccinations. Proof of vaccinations is required.
