Outdoor Leash Walking Dog Training Classes


 Return to Manners Classes

This is a four-week mini-course that happens outdoors. We work on leash walking in real-life situations, including on sidewalks, at the park, under the el tracks, and past other dogs. The course addresses loose leash walking, jumping on people or dogs that you pass, and dealing with strange noises. This course does not address leash reactivity - this is covered in private lessons.

By conducting the course in the outdoors, we can more easily simulate real-world scenarios, noises, and distractions that you many encounter.

We meet at different locations in the West Loop - each course and date is slightly different. Each week, we will inform you each week of where we will be meeting. If a day is rained out, we will improvise, including going inside a store.

Please note that this class is not intended for overly reactive dogs who may exhibit overly aggressive behavior when passing other dogs or people. If you are wondering whether this is the right course for your dog, please contact our trainer - you may need private lessons, which we can provide.
