All dogs attending must be dressed according to The Pet Professional Guild's Guiding Principles. No shock, choke or prong collars. We recommend a comfortable harness and a 2m fabric/leather leash (no retractable leashes, please).
Please bring your dog's crate or mat, a Kong or other mentally stimulating toy. Dogs will need to rest quietly during the complimentary coffee break and at other allotted times throughout the workshop.
Please bring lots of small, tasty, easy to chew and swallow, "high value" treats e.g. chopped hotdog, ham, chicken... Please also bring lots of small "super high value" treats e.g. very small pieces of steak, chicken, a tube of ‘squeezy’ cheese, dehydrated liver... (something your dog absolutely loves and does not get very often). 3/4 of your treats should be high value and 1/4 of them should be super high value.
Please bring a tug toy, ball or other favorite toy - one your dog will 'work for'.
If you need directions, please let us know and we will be happy to send them!
You will receive an e-mail reminder at least 24 hours before the start of your class. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you.
Looking forward to training with you in the workshop!
Are you struggling to walk your dog? Are you tired of your dog pulling and dragging you around? Register now for our Walk This Way Solutions Workshop!
During this fun 2-day workshop you will learn lots of games and skills that will help you teach your dog to walk nicely on a loose leash, making walks less stressful and more enjoyable for both you and your companion! You will also learn how the environment impacts your dog's behavior and how improving your training mechanics and implementing 'management strategies' can help you overcome some of the many challenges that may come your way!
Please note, although we will cover some topics and games that will help your dog cope in more challenging environments when he may encounter other dogs, people, bicycles, traffic... this is not a workshop for leash 'reactive' dogs or dogs that show signs of 'aggression' - your dog will be working near other dogs and people.
