Step Up your walks with our leash training program

Start Enjoying Stress-Free Walks Every Time with your best friend!

Dog leash training is crucial for fostering a strong bond between you and your furry companion. Whether you’ve recently welcomed a dog or are managing an older dog’s behavior, mastering leash etiquette is essential for enjoyable walks and a harmonious relationship. Our private dog leash training lessons are designed to equip you with the skills and knowledge needed to confidently handle your dog on a leash, ensuring stress-free outings for both you and your canine companion.

Understanding Leash Training:

Leash training involves teaching your dog to walk calmly beside you, respond to cues, and maintain focus during walks. Dogs often pull on the leash due to natural curiosity and excitement. Our personalized approach to leash training addresses these behaviors by focusing on effective techniques tailored to your dog’s unique personality and learning style.

Benefits of Private Lessons:

Private leash training lessons offer several advantages over group classes or DIY approaches:

  1. Personalized Attention: Each dog is unique, and our private lessons allow us to tailor the training program to meet your dog’s specific needs and your training goals.

  2. Convenience: Conducted in your home or familiar surroundings, private lessons minimize distractions and maximize learning opportunities for your dog.

  3. Flexible Scheduling: We offer lesson times that fit into your schedule, ensuring consistency in your dog’s training progress.

Our Approach:

At Calm K9 Training, we use effective training methods that strengthen the bond between you and your dog. Our certified trainers utilize techniques designed to teach your dog to walk politely on a leash without harsh corrections. Here’s how our private leash training lessons typically unfold:

  1. Initial Assessment: We start with a thorough assessment of your dog’s behavior, focusing on leash manners, responsiveness to commands, and specific challenges you’re facing.
  2. Customized Training Plan: Based on our assessment, we develop a personalized training plan that targets your dog’s strengths and areas needing improvement.
  3. Hands-On Practice: During each session, we guide you through practical exercises designed to reinforce desired behaviors, such as loose leash walking and maintaining focus.
  4. Progress Tracking: We monitor your dog’s progress throughout the training process, adjusting techniques as necessary to ensure steady improvement.


Common Challenges Addressed:

Leash training can present various challenges depending on your dog’s age, breed, and past experiences. Some common challenges we address include:

  • Pulling on the Leash: Teaching your dog to walk calmly without pulling on the leash, promoting a relaxed walking experience.
  • Reactivity: Helping dogs that lunge or bark at other dogs, people, or distractions encountered during walks.
  • Distraction Management: Building your dog’s focus and responsiveness to commands despite distractions like other animals, noises, or unfamiliar environments.
  • Fear or Anxiety: Assisting dogs that exhibit fear or anxiety-related behaviors while on leash, helping them feel more comfortable during walks.
