Lead Work
A dog who pulls on the lead can take the pleasure out of walking them. Constant tension on the dogs neck and throat area can cause the dog long term health problems. Our lead work course works on the 3 main elements of leadwork:
  • Teaching the dog where you want him to walk when on a lead. Most owners want their dog to walk beside them. However most dogs that pull walk out in front.
  • Getting the dog to focus on you. Most dogs who pull on the lead are more interested in the environment and where they want to go.
  • Teaching both the handler and the dog to keep the lead loose.
Exercises are taught in the controlled environment of the hall before being transferred outside.

We recommend a harness with a ring on the front, used in combination with a double ended training lead for leaching loose lead walking. Equipment will be available to try / borrow in class.

Recall can be run as an hour’s group class with up to 6 dogs, or as a 30 minute individual 1-2-1 session.

All our training sessions run on a monthly basis. Sign up and pay in advance for the sessions you can do that month (we don’t charge you if you know in advanced you cant come to a session). New classes starting the first week of every month. See prices page for more information.
