Teach Your Dog To Pull Clinic (tw f1713)

Teach Your Dog to Pull Training Clinic

Clinics focus on:

  •   the owners learning about tools, strategies and techniques to have their dogs pull on command. 
  • The dogs get introduced to this fun new pulling game. 

This clinic would be a good step toward the goals of kick-sledding, skijoring, or carting.

Harness and gear is provided.

Pre-registration is required to ensure enough gear, harnesses, sleds and instructors are available.

This is a one-time session that runs 2 hours in length.

Fee:  $50.00 fee per dog and all their people.

Restrictions:  Limited to 5 dogs

    What a great introduction to a wonderful winter sport to do with your dog! The equipment provided was top-notch, and the instruction geared to giving you a chance to really give kick sledding with your dog a good try! Marty and Brenda set each team up for success!

    Hi Heather
    Keep in mind that your dog is only 8 months and shouldn’t be putting too much stress on its growth plates.
    In the meantime, I urge you to get some professional behavioural help for you and your dog. A little time and money invested now will pay huge dividends. Regular obedience classes provide opportunity to develop the boundaries and direction you want for your dog, as well as a place to practise them.
    Boundaries and direction are key components of our goal of ‘Creating balanced energy...on the Trail’
    If you like we can recommend someone to you we have used for my dog. Please give us an email or if you want we can chat more on the discussion page here on Meetup. We already have a few members with years of dog experience who might help with some positive insight.

    ‘Teaching your dogs to Pull’ can be an excellent tool to use for dealing with an aggressive dog, but it wouldn’t be the first tool we would grab. This clinic and venue would not be appropriate for dogs with aggression issues. There are just too many variables that we could not control.
    We want to set your dog up for success and not put other dogs at risk.
    But stay tuned to our group. Some of our upcoming ‘Dry Land Training’ sessions, to be held in the spring, will be specifically setup to deal with dogs that lunge aggressively, and other rude manners on the trail.
    Our bike training program works wonders. You would be surprised how little a dog worries about other dogs when you can substitute another behavior or put a more desirable behavior on cue. Running his butt off doesn’t hurt either.

    Hi there! I have another question- what do I need to bring with me on Sunday? Should I bring treats for Striker? Thanks again!

      Bring you, your dog and any of his favourite people as well, as regular 6 ft. leash and flat collar.Treats are not needed for the training. They are likely to draw other dogs into your space.

    Hi Alana
    Thanks again for providing more information about Striker in your emails. Your last email answered all my quesestins. I think Striker will be fine. As you said, if he gets too stressed, you can always put him back into the car while you continue. We will send out the registration form. You can bring payment on Sunday.

    I am hoping to come Sunday. I haven't RSVP'd yet, as I want to ask about bringing Striker as he can be hard to manage and reactive when it comes to meeting other dogs or strangers. What do others think? I'm sure he would love it! He is great when he is at a herding clinic, as he knows he has work to do there. I am hopeful he will feel the same about pulling!
