Requirements to Attend Off-Leash Classes:

All group training classes are only for dogs that are at ease with other canines and people. If your dog exhibits reactive behavioural issues such as uncontrolled lunging, barking, growling, or severe symptoms of anxiety when in a group setting, these sessions will be too stressful for both you and your dog to attend.

You’re not alone though. These issues are common. For owners of reactive dogs we recommend our Private Dog Training sessions to assist with these socialization issues.

It is Raising Canine policy that we do not accept pit bulls.

Off-Leash Training Techniques Covered

  • Playing with other dogs
  • Chasing a bunny
  • While bikes are passing by
  • Or running after another dog’s ball

You will learn that dogs want to come back willingly when they are encouraged with positive reinforcement and play as opposed to anger and correction.

You will also learn:

  • The etiquette, rules, and dangers of off leash parks
  • How to stop your dog from a distance if they are running back to you while in harm’s way, such as a busy road
  • The convenience of off leash heel

The classes are done without judgment as certain breeds, personalities, and backgrounds make it more difficult for some dogs to learn come when called. At Raising Canine we work to foster a fun and welcoming environment for all.
