TEEN LEASH & GREET CLASS – designed for social dogs 6 months and older & friendly with other dogs while on leash

My Pack Leash Walk and dog training class combined! Walk with other handlers and social dogs in “The Pack.” A Pack Walk provides excellent physical and mental exercise for your dog as well as healthy interaction with other social dogs. This is an ALL outside walking and training class at Central Park in Doylestown. Learn new exercises to improve your dog’s leash walking skills as we power walk through the park. This class is a great option for the active teenage dog! Or, if your dog is excitable around other dogs, needs exercise, constantly stops on their walks or simply enjoys walking. We teach them to walk (and stay!) on one side of you, walk in a straight line, walk at a steady pace and walk with their head up in the air (rather than trying to eat everything off the ground!). We will also practice appropriate meet and greet skills with new people and dogs. This class is taught at least twice every Fall and Spring.
