Event Details
Workshop: Leash Pulling
Instructor: Alisha Fritz

Monday, January 15, 2018 6:30 PM - 7:45 PM



Monday, January 15 6:30-7:45 pm and Monday, January 22 6:30-7:45 pm 

This 2-part workshop will discuss the reasons why dogs pull and how humans unintentionally teach their dogs to pull harder.   We will cover training and management techniques to make walks more enjoyable for both dogs and their human families.  All dog should come with well-fitted collars or harnesses and a standard 4 or 6 foot leash.  Absolutely no retractable leashes. The humans should bring lots of soft treats your dog really enjoys as well as a way to carry them, such as a treat pouch.  Both humans and dogs will be moving a lot during these workshops. Enrolled dogs must be up-to-date on vaccinations and at least 4 months old. This workshop is not appropriate for dogs who are reactive to people or other dogs (barking, lunging, etc).  Additional handlers are welcome.
