Off-Leash Readiness

Take The Basics To The Next Level

Now that you and your dog have learned to communicate and some basics, you may want to strengthen the behaviors and gain further confidence in preparation for working off-leash

In this class, students learn how to begin to control their dog when he or she is off their leash. Dogs and people will take concepts such as “stay” and “come” to the next level.

Initially with the leash on for safety, with the goal for you to have the confidence to drop the lead and your dog behave properly.

Please contact us for information on when our next class is starting – we allow you to join a class up to lesson #3, so give us a call!
