Is your dog a social butterfly that explodes with excitement at the sight of people, dogs or other distractions on your walks? Or perhaps your dog finds it impossible to settle at times and they leap, whimper or bark when they just can’t wait any longer. These behaviours can be difficult to live with at times. But, the good news is they usually mean you have a dog that can’t wait to be trained! Hyper Hound is a one 75-minute class all about impulse control in situations that dogs may otherwise loose their cool.

TAKE THE LEAD!
Loose Leash Walking (3 x 60 Min Sessions)

TAKE THE LEAD class consists of THREE (3) 60-minute classes, ONCE every TWO weeks for FIVE (5) weeks.

 

We all know dogs are inquisitive creatures that love to explore new places and investigate everything of interest. But, no one enjoys being dragged around on your walks from one thing to another. Dogs that pull on leash and lack the skills to compose themselves around distractions can develop frustration and that can lead to behaviour problems, especially reactivity around other dogs. Learn how to TAKE THE LEAD on your walks!

 

Classes are held at local parks in Courtenay so you and your dog can learn and practice in real-life situations among real-life distractions.
