Do you struggle with your dog pulling on the lead?
Is it a pain (literally!) every time you clip the lead on?
Would you like to take them for a relaxing walk over the summer, without them pinging all over the place?

Then this session is designed for you! Join a small group (limited to 6 handler places and 6 spectator spaces) for an extended session specifically tailored to teach your dog to walk nicely on the lead. You will learn 
- how to handle a lead
- how to show your dog where you would like them to walk
- how and when to reward your dog
- when to fade out treats
- real world strategies: coping with distractions

The price is £35 per handler, £15 per spectator. Tea/coffee will be provided (and probably cake!). 


Your dog will need to be able to cope in a group setting - if they find being in a indoor setting with other dogs uncomfortable Denise can still help ... do get in touch if personal tuition in your own home is more suitable.

Is your dog a clever canine, and you'd like to try something fun together that uses both of your brains?
Do you need a few "tricks" up your sleeve to help your dog focus on you, help with loose lead walking or recall, or perhaps distract your dog from things that worry them in a positive way? Tricks have lots of practical applications too.
Or do you like to show off just how fabulous your furry friend is? 

Then this session is designed for you! Join a small group (limited to 6 handler places and 6 spectator spaces) for an extended session specifically tailored to teach your dog a fantastic range of tricks. 

There's a "selection box" of around 30 different tricks we can choose from. It could be that you want to refine and improve the look of something they already do, or you could be new to tricks. Some tricks will be:
- paw/pad
- spin/twist
- paws up
- walking backwards
- target touching / nose touches
- sequencing tricks together in a routine
The price is £35 per handler, £15 per spectator. Tea/coffee will be provided (and probably cake!). 


Your dog will need to be able to cope in a group setting - if they find being in a indoor setting with other dogs uncomfortable Denise can still help ... do get in touch if personal tuition in your own home is more suitable.
