Lead walking workshop
Going for a walk with your dog has to be one of life’s simplest pleasures. But being dragged along isn’t fun for anyone, and it can also result in injuries for both dog and owner alike.
If you’re ready to put the fun back into your dog walks, this loose lead walking workshop is exactly what you need. This workshop will provide you with the tools you need to make your lead smile, just like you will be when your dog learns that walking near you is the best place to be! We’ll cover techniques to help you to teach your dog to focus on you, and how to deal with different situations and environments.
This workshop is run over two hour long sessions, with a minimum of a week’s gap in between.
During the first session, we will be working on some of the foundation exercises and skills that will help your dog to focus their attention on you while on the lead. You will be asked to continue to practice these exercises during the week so that we can progress the training in the following session. In the second session, we will continue to build on your dog’s new lead walking skills and help to apply the training to real life scenarios.
Classes are held indoors at Bramham Pavilion (with the option of using the playing field should the weather be kind to us!).
Class sizes are restricted to five, allowing Kate to give you all important 121 coaching during the class.
