5 ways to instantly improve your dogs on lead behavior

Meet Laura, who is running a FREE webinar on Tuesday 29th June at 10.30am on 5 ways to instantly improve your dogs on lead behavior

A recording will be available to those who sign up, but are unable to make the live webinar.  

“I would have no hesitation in recommending Laura as a dog trainer. Having seen the evidence of how well behaved her own dogs are. I have also been very impressed with her online training courses since not being able to attend classes due to Covid this year. The instructions on the videos are clear and easy to follow plus you have the added advantage of being able to keep referring to them in your own time” K. Collier-Keywood

Attending a training class is like learning to drive on the motorway!

When distraction levels are high, both humans and dogs struggle to learn. At the Dog Owner Training School our 3 step system makes learning easy. 

1) Start the learning process at home, where the distractions are low and sessions can be kept short. 

2) Schedule a face to face 1-2-1 or attend an online zoom lesson. Build on your skills keeping distractions low to optimise learning. We have clients all over the world.

3)If you are local, attend a monthly group class to practice around other dogs and people. At this stage you aren’t learning anything new, just building on what you have previously learnt.
