Take the LeadTM is an effective, yet gentle system of training that makes sense to both people and dogs. This fun, firm, and fair training method connects you with your dog by working with the natural instincts of your dog instead of against them. With our approach you will have the confidence needed to trust that your dog will obey your commands when off -leash, even when faced with distractions. This behaviour transformation happens so fast that it amazes some people! Once the training has been completed, you will enjoy the confidence of being able to let your dog off the leash with the comfort of knowing that he/she will return whenever you ask.
Most dogs and puppies perceive Take the LeadTM training as simple “pack cooperation” which is fun to them! Therefore, they quickly shake their rebellious behaviour, and give you their full attention, as they perceive you to be their pack leader. Doesn’t that sound more enjoyable than a dog that runs from you? Do you think that would be more satisfying than yanking the leash and yelling corrections at them?
Private Sessions are tailored to fit your individual needs and goals. I offer these individual Do It Yourself sessions as six or more sessions of approximately one hour each with me and my pack. Between each private coaching session, I will assign homework that you will practice with your dog to build the team of your dreams! Before you know it … You will be Taking the Lead with your dog!
