As the name indicates, off-leash training is about teaching your dog to walk with you when they are not clipped to a leash. It is a unique type of training that enhances the trust bond between a dog and its owner. The goal is to have the dog listen and obey commands even when they are roaming freely. It is quite different from the obedience skills they need inside an enclosed dog park or a fenced yard. Off-leash dog training is beneficial if you want to take your dog to camping sites or go hiking.
Our qualified dog trainers teach your dog to listen to your instructions and help build a healthy, long-lasting relationship with them.
We provide off-leash training to make it easier to keep your dog fit and help prevent them from developing health problems.
We will help them learn to behave well off the leash so they are safe while still enjoying their freedom.
This is advanced training for your dog and, as such, is a subsequent session to any Basic Obedience programs.
Here are some characteristics that indicate your dog is a good candidate for off-leash training:
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 Private Lessons formats:
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.
