Train your dog to walk beside you without pulling, lunging or barking at oncoming dogs or people. Learn how to enjoy a walk with your dog on a long lead, letting him sniff where he wants & then come back to you.

walkingEveryone wants their dog walking  nicely beside them without barking or lunging at other dogs and without jumping all over people they meet. Don’t they?

Well most people do. And, if you are reading this now, you probably do too!

Although this is a bare bones course, Tails Up applies the same standards of support for owners and respect and care for dogs in this, as in the longer, more involved courses.

The Course:

This course focuses on dog walking and does not address other aspects of dog training (apart from the basics, of course).

It is an ideal course for people with limited time for classes, or who can’t come to class every week.

It is also an ideal course for people whose dog is great in most respects but is a nightmare to walk in public.

There are 5 x 45 minute sessions run over 10 weeks. So, a class every fortnight.

This gives you plenty of time to practise between lessons.

What you will learn:

  • 5 specific techniques to teach your dog not to pull or walk in front of you;
  • how to use your lead successfully and what lead to choose for what circumstances;
  • the importance of canine etiquette  in successful lead walking;
  • emergency techniques;
  • the best use of your voice;
  • things to observe about your dog & the walking environment;
  • long lead walking;
  • close walking;
  • who & what are your enemies and
  • how to choose an appropriate lead and harness.
