Does your dog have a hard time keeping their paws on the floor? This is a common problem in younger dogs especially, but can be present at any age. It is important to teach your dog not to jump on people without being asked because they could easily injure a child or older person.
During this one hour workshop, we will focus on teaching the impulse control necessary to keep their paws on the ground in many scenarios. What to bring: -Your dog -Any humans that would like to actively participate (kids and adults who are ready to learn are welcome) -A 6-foot standard leash (no extendable or stretching leashes) -Whatever equipment your dog typically wears when on leash -Lots of treats! We recommend multiple types with varying value to your dog -A training pouch or other device to hold treats -Poo bags -A very exciting toy or object


Our workshops are a great way to learn how to handle specific issues! You must take the Training Basics Bootcamp or have a private lesson before attending any of the other workshops.
