Loose Leash Walking Mini-Workshop (FREE)
This 1-hour mini-workshop provides you with a toolbox to teach polite walking behavior. We will focus on: walking management tools, attention skills (key to loose-leash walking success), reinforcing polite walking behavior, and what to do if your dog forges ahead of you.
Prior training is not required, but strongly encouraged to get full benefit of workshop. Your dog should be responsive to their name and able to sit on cue. Dogs should be comfortable around unfamiliar people and dogs.

We will be meeting at the Loose Park picnic shelter, then moving to a location that is better for training.
NOTE – This workshop is limited to 8 attendees, and 1 dog per attendee. If you RSVP YES, but your plans change, please update your RSVP to NO so another member may attend.
