About this Class:

The best walks with our dogs can be like walking hand in hand with a dear friend, or dancing with our favorite partner.

Join us to create wonderful walks with attention games, patterned courses, free-walking, and sports foundations.

Prerequisites: For more focus on the specifics of leash walking we recommend first taking “Love the Leash: End the Tug of War.” If you and your dog are already comfortable with the basics, then this course is a great place to start.

Gear/equipment needed: Have your dog wear a flat or martingale collar, or a body harness. Have a 6 foot or longer fabric, rope, or leather lead to clip to your dog’s collar or harness. No retractable leashes.
