Leash Manners is a group dog-only class and teaches dogs how to behave in an on-leash pack setting, curb excitability, and equipment management.
The class is for dogs with poor leash manners and excited pulling behavior. Dogs also learn van etiquette for safer travel to and from trails and healthy boundaries getting in and out of vehicles.
Dogs work in groups and learn to leash manners and boundaries. Each class rotates through the following commands and also focuses on your dog’s improvement areas.
- Wait/ Impulse Control
- Leash walking solo
- Leash walking in a group
- Structured socialization
Dogs train in public areas with distractions to improve consistency. This class is a prerequisite for our Adventure Hikes and Beach Excursions for dogs who do not pass the Assessment Hike.
Note: If your dog has on-leash reactivity (“aggression”) or high prey, hunting drive on trails and walks, this class is not for you. Please see our Obedience Plus: Leash Pulling program for a comprehensive training solution.
