Loose Leash Training Workshop! Nov. 2nd

Many of you have already done private training classes with Lindsey & I’m pleased to hear all the positive feedback. I’m excited to announce that we will now have our first group training class! This class will focus on loose-leash walking. Wouldn’t it be amazing to have your pooch walk next to you, instead of pulling you?

This is a very short 2 hour workshop that gives you the basics to start to walk WITH your pooch. This is a way to build your relationship with you pooch, in a force-free way. We only use with positive reinforcement methods. No prong or choke collars are permitted, and won’t be needed!

We understand that dogs pull because they are excited to go for a walk. The new smells & environment makes them eager to move forward. Plus, “worker” breeds such as border collies, husky’s & aussies enjoy pulling, and when given a harness, it encourages this action even more. However, this is never fun for us owners, and it can also damage your pets trachea. As this will be the first group training class, I’m opening it up to first existing PBF clients before announcing it to the public on Friday. It will also be offered at a special one-time rate of $35! Space is very limited, so please reserve your spot before we’re full! (855) PBF-PETS
