Leash Walking in the Real World Workshop

Does your dog walk nicely with you sometimes but lose that connection around distractions at other times? This workshop is designed to help take your leash walking game to the next level. It’s great for teams working on goals like Canine Good Citizen, therapy dog, or just being able to take their dog to more places with them.

This two-hour workshop will cover the concepts behind strong and connected leash walking, offering opportunities to practice around appropriate levels of distraction, all in the safe and positive environment of Paws ‘N Effect’s fenced outdoor training area. Handlers will learn how to support and encourage their dogs to offer more and more appropriate behavior, and dogs will learn how to maintain their connection and walk nicely past increasing levels of distractions.


Rain date: August 14, 6-8PM
