||Over 6 Months
Tecla’s K-9 Academy’s Basic Obedience 1: Leash Handling is perfect for dogs 6 months old and up and their owners. This class will equip owners with the skills necessary to use their leash as a communication tool as well as a deeper understanding of their canine companions by placing emphasis on how dogs learn and the importance of a balanced owner-dog relationship.
Imagine using your leash to communicate rather than to restrain. This class focuses on the skills needed by both owner and dog to develop an effortless loose leash walk under distraction as well as a sit and down while out on a walk. However, that is just the beginning as this 7-week course takes owner and dog on a journey where the owner gains an understanding of how relationship, obedience, and behavior inter-relate and how to utilize each to help his/her dog reach its highest potential. Payment in full is due at registration and includes a $75 non-refundable deposit.
