Dog Training – Polite Leash Walking Class

Got a dog that pulls you off your feet? Take this course to teach your dog polite loose-leash walking.

Created by Treat Pouch - Certified Professional Dog Trainers


Students: 578, Price: $69.99

Students: 578, Price:  Paid

This course is designed to teach you how to train your dog to walk politely on a loose-leash. Many dogs pull when on leash, which makes walking both unpleasant, dangerous, and harmful for both the dog and their owner.

Included in this course are lectures and video demonstrations that cover topics such as why your dog pulls, what type of equipment we should use, and specific techniques and exercises to use as you train your dog.

Dogs that learn polite leash walking are a pleasure to take out, and as a result, they enjoy exercise, freedom, and socialization. This helps prevent both medical issues caused by lack of exercise, and behavior problems caused by not getting out for a daily walk.

This class teaches polite leash walking using positive reinforcement and force-free training.

Dog Training- Leash Manners for the Real World

A guide to teach walking on leash appropriately in all situations.

Created by Nikki Ivey - Canine Behavior Specialist and Trainer at DogSpeak

Students: 170, Price:  Paid

Leash manners are one of the most difficult things for dog lovers to teach pets. It can be frustrating when dogs pull, lunge or otherwise react to distractions while on leash. 

This course will detail how to use a leash properly in order to ensure students' dogs are successful in the real world. Topics covered include stationary exercises (pre-leash walking), proper leash use, distractions and dog reactivity, and teaching on-leash manners. 

This course not only prepares students to teach dogs leash manners, but also lays foundation for future off-leash control.  

There are no prerequisites for this course, however, students are encouraged to take the course related to training foundation.  No additional materials are needed for this course, only a willingness to learn how to train a dog to walk nicely on a leash.  

This course does not involve the use of harsh techniques or tools such as yelling, jerking on the leash, pinch collars or shock collars.  This course only teaches students positive dog training techniques.  

Students can expect to finish this course in 1-3 months.  This time will vary depending on the progression of individual students and dogs.
