About these classes:
This class is not appropriate for dogs that display reactive behaviors (barking, lunging, whining) when on leash. If you have any questions about whether this class is appropriate, please contact the instructor.
Out & About (4 weeks):
This four-week class will take what you learned in previous training classes out into the real world. The first class will be a brief review of the skills you’ll need outside. In each subsequent class, you will walk your dog in outdoor settings with increasing distractions. You and your dog must have already worked on loose-leash walking. No choke, prong or electronic collars will be permitted. If you have questions about whether this class is appropriate for your dog, please contact the instructor before registering. Generally, students from Leash Manners and Basic Manners I & II will find this to be a natural next step in their dog’s (and their own) training.
Out & About: Winter Lights Edition (3 weeks):
Soak up the season and enjoy walking with your dog at three different local outdoor locations with festive Winter lights! This is a great class to practice loose leash walking around other doggy friends and beautiful scenery.
Prerequisite: Our Puppy K, Basic, or Adolescent class or instructor’s permission. For Winter Lights Edition, dogs should be comfortable walking in the dark.
Fee: $130 for four week Out & About
$95 for three-week Out & About: Winter Lights Edition
