Leash Skills

A well socialized pup needs to walk nicely on leash for many reasons, yet so many of our pups pull, jump, and react when in this common situation which should be pleasurable.  Held in our indoor and outdoor dog park, this class covers the multiple types of leashes and collars on the market, basic commands, tips, and strategies to shape your pup into a good walking and social companion.  And due to Wag Central’s unique layout, real life can be simulated within our walls and outdoor spaces.
