Dog Training Class – Loose Lead Walking

Why do dogs pull? Dogs pull for a variety of reasons, they naturally move faster than we do, they’re very stimulated by the environment, or because they have been rewarded for pulling by sniffing the trees or greeting another dog.

This one off class is designed to help you teach your dog to walk with a loose lead by using practical exercises, fun games, with plenty of tips and advice.

The class typically lasts around 2 hours with a maximum of 6 dogs.

Why Should I Train My Dog?

Dog Obedience

All dogs need some level of obedience training to make life easier and happy for both dog and owner.  A dog who responds quickly to ques can enjoy a fun, happy life off lead, walking nicely by your side on the street or in the park, and exploring the Yorkshire Dales or local reservoirs.  Sounds like bliss right? And it’s all a lot easier to manage when your dog respects your commands.

A well trained dog is less likely to develop behaviour problems.  Setting the rules out from the start gives clear communication in what is expected and acceptable behaviour.

Puppy Socialisation

Puppy socialisation is THE most important part of puppyhood.  Well maybe one of the top 3, we’ll include house training and obedience in the top 3.  Well socialised dogs are more confident, and accepting of new situations.  Great puppy socialisation prevents behavioural problems from developing.

Dog Agility Training

Why train agility? Because it is fun and addictive! Well there are worse things to be addicted to I guess… Agility is a great way to bond with your dog, and grab his focus.  Not to mention excellent exercise, and a brilliant way to harness giddy energy!

Dog Recall Training

Does your dog come back when called?  Recall is one of the top dog training issues that I encounter.  Solid recall skills are essential for an active dog life.  Without it, your dog may be confined to a leash for his daily walks, or run away for hours on end! That’s not much fun.  There’s nothing like off leash freedom without worry that your dog is not coming back.

Dog’s Pulling On Lead

This is another big issue which can be prevented with early puppy training from the beginning.  Trust me I’ve been there with my rescue George (aka Darth Vader, named for the raspy noise he made when pulling).  Its really no fun for you or your dog, and can cause injury to you both.
