Why do some dogs behave better off leash than on lead? Is there a connection between leash pulling and heightened reactivity to people and other dogs? The answer is yes, and understanding the fascinating psychology behind it can help you manage the behavior.
In a perfect world, all the outdoors would be as safe as a dog park! Instead, cooperative walking skills are a necessary evil. Fortunately, learning how to condition and redirect your leash reactive dog is easier than you might think. When walks are associated positively your outings will shift from frustration to a cause for mutual celebration.
Note: Private lessons include travel within a 20 minute radius of my home in Katonah, NY. If you live further away and would like a home training visit, a travel fee may apply. For each additional 10 minute increment, a $25 fee will apply.
If air travel is required, email me to discuss my day rate and other out-of-pocket expenses.
