Heeling & Leash Handling
This workshop is designed to teach owners how to properly handle the leash during heeling exercises. You can enroll online through our client portal!
This is a heeling foundations course, perfect for…
1) Dogs who already know how to heel with us but whose owners need to learn still. (any of our day training or tag-along dogs who haven’t also taken a class or lesson).
2) Dogs that have covered heeling during a beginner level course and would like a refresher. (Graduates of a 100 level course or private lesson program who need to brush up on their skills).
3) Dogs who are new to Leash Free Living from other training programs and need to learn some leash handling before jumping into an advanced or elective class. (Dogs that have learned heeling, but not from us).

Nail Care: Trim & Dremel

Get comfortable trimming and grinding your dog’s nails. Nails should be trimmed at minimum once a week, and there is no reason you shouldn’t be able to do them right at home. Short nails can improve your dog’s traction, posture and proprioception. We will have equipment available, but feel free to ask for recommendations as well.

Thursday, September 30th
8:00 pm – 8:50 pm
Saturday, October 23rd
1:00 – 2:00 pm

Play & Train Workshop
Teach your dog to respond to obedience cues with the ultimate distraction – their peers. Learn how we manage multiple dog situations, and high excitement/stress environments. This is perfect for the dog that doesn’t always play well with others, that annoy other dogs, barks at other dogs, is nervous around other dogs, or just not totally obedient when in play mode (in the backyard or at the dog park, etc).
It would be helpful for the dogs to have been introduced to the Place, Sit and Come commands before this workshop, but not necessary.
This workshop is not appropriate for dog-aggressive dogs.

Canine Good Citizen Testing & Trick Dog Trials

See if your dog has what it takes to earn their Trick Dog Titles! We will be testing dog and handler teams for the AKC Trick Dog Titles. We can evaluate dogs at any and all levels, so if you know more than the minimum required tricks, you could earn multiple titles at one shot! We will also be evaluating dogs for the CGC at that time, by request.

ANY dog can participate and earn titles, as long as they have an AKC number (and ANY dog can apply for a number). If you need help figuring out if your dog has a number or not, let us know and we can help sort it out. We will be testing Leash Free Living dogs for free at this event, but there is an application fee that has to be mailed in to earn the certificate.

Next Session TBD
