Manners | Distractions | Leash Walking

Leash Training

Once your dog and you have completed Foundation Training and your dog has an understanding of basic skills, along with your newly learned techniques, we move to a new level of training called Leash Training. It is at this level that we can expect our dog to accomplish a task without jumping on people when they meet, without pulling the leash when they see another dog, or respond to our call even if they are interested in something better to sniff.

Manners | Distraction | leash Training

  • Eliminate/reduce jumping on people
  • Eliminate/reduce pulling on leash
  • Improve responsiveness to commands
  • Teaches your dog to be calm around people and other dogs
  • Helps your dog to adapt do different exposures

Before moving into manner, distraction, and leash training, your dog must have the fundamentals of the basic, this is what we call the Foundation Training. Your dog must be able to perform basic obedience without cookies to begin this level.

 This is the level we also begin training for the Canine Good Citizen Certificate, Therapy Dog Training, and Emotional Support Dog and Services Task work.
