Off-Leash Training enhances the trust bond between a dog and its owner to the extent that the dog remains willing to listen and to obey behavioural commands even when it is roaming freely.
This is advanced training for your dog and, as such, is a subsequent session to any Basic Obedience programs.
In our Off-Leash training program, your dog will learn to perform all of the commands taught in Basic Obedience training while roaming freely/at a distance and in spite of various distractions. A number of different scenarios are introduced and implemented in which your dog will learn to maintain a constant focus on you and to respond when off its leash.
Off-Leash training follows the same structure as our Basic Obedience training programs and it is offered through our Board and Train or Private Lessons formats:
The ultimate success of this particular program is dependent on the commitment of the dog owner to practice and reinforce the commands taught to the dog by the Alpha Paws trainer during the on-site portion of the program. This can be achieved through practice sessions on a daily basis as well as a consistent use of the various commands in everyday situations.
Alpha Paws will coordinate private training sessions for your dog at your home or at our training facility according to your preference and your personal schedule. In these sessions, our trainer will work simultaneously with you and your dog based on the dog’s particular training needs. Once again, follow-up practice and reinforcement is highly recommended after these private lessons have been completed.
