Walk Training & Behavior
If walking your dog has become a stressful and painful task, we can provide a solution! Our certified dog trainers can take your dog for TRAINING WALKS where your furry friend will learn essential leash skills. This way, you can start enjoying your time with your dog without the stress and hassle of a misbehaving pup.
It's important to remember that walking politely on a leash is not a natural behavioral trait for dogs. They prefer to explore freely at their own pace, often faster than ours. Walking a dog on a leash is a societal construct and only a problem in the human mind, not for the dog.
With our Walk Training & Behavior PROGRAM, we address the following for a more harmonious walk between you and your best friend:
Walk POLITELY on a leash without any issues while passing other dogs or people
Do not get concerned about NOVEL stimuli such as seeing a stroller or hearing a car backfire
More ENGAGEMENT with the handler (check-ins)
IGNORING distractions like other dogs and friendly humans
Promoting the CHOICE to walk and sniff
The use of REAL-LIFE rewards to reinforce new skills
How Walk Training & Behavior Works
Before starting our Walk Training & Behavior program, we require a 30-minute session to discuss your goals for the program and assess your dog's LEASH WALKING SKILLS. This assessment will give you an opportunity to see whether our training style matches yours as you will continue on your own after the last session.
This requirement only applies to NEW clients. If you are an established client, you can skip this step.
The cost of this assessment session is $75.
