Leash Manners

Sick of getting dragged down the street or ignored by your dog anytime you snap on the leash? The Leash Manners Workshop covers three of the most common methods of getting dogs to walk politely with you. Humane Society dogs will be used for individuals to practice with and tips, tricks and take home materials will be provided.

Dog Reactivity

Want to get your dog out more but embarrassed at how he acts? Let us help. Dog’s reacting to other dogs is a common problem and one that can cause a lot of frustration in your relationship, but there are solutions. In this workshop we cover the three ways you can get your dog to stop reacting to other dogs and focus more on you.

Rapid Recall (Coming when Called)

This critical cue can be the difference between on and off leash walks, where you walk and the quality of your walks. In this workshop we discuss how to achieve a happy, rapid recall through different situations and with different distractions present.

Service Dog Information

This workshop focuses on 3 main areas within this broad topic: Is your dog a candidate for this type of work, the rules, laws and implications and how to train a service dog.

All workshops are held in the LPCHS multi-purpose room. See Event Calendar for specific dates and to sign up
