Frequently Asked Questions
Why do our dogs pull on the lead?
Dogs get rewarded for pulling on the lead all the time, pulling their handler to a grass verge to sniff. How about pulling to get to that small crumb of food? Or the biggie dragging us all the way to the park, then being let off to run and play.
What a fantastic behaviour this pulling on the lead is!
Are there class handouts to help when I get home?
We’ve gone one step further for you. We have an online course for Loose lead training including videos.
You will have 180 day access from the start of your course. As well as access to bonus content.
What equipment for walking our dogs?
We recommend any owner have a body harness for their dog. Harness’s take all the pressure off of the neck area.
What if it rains?
We will train in most weathers. However, if there is a weather warning ahead of class and it could become dangerous to train due to storm conditions. The class will be rescheduled.
