Walking Workshops – Level I and II

Posted in Walking Workshops

Level I $35 (includes workshop training supplies)
Level II $25

Walking Workshop I will take you through how to start your walk before you leave the house and the first stages of structured loose leash walking. This level is appropriate for pups new to our loose leash walking method. New clients, please reach out to us via email or phone prior to enrollment to ensure this workshop is an appropriate place to start your training with us.

Walking Workshop II will review Level I and then focus on reactions to distractions with other dogs and humans while still achieving a controlled loose leash walk. The level II sessions are always different, and a great way for even the most experienced of walkers to practice calm behavior around distraction. We encourage clients and pups who have already completed Level II to keep coming back for more, as each session is tailored to the students' needs!

When Walking Workshop Levels I and II are held at the same time (noted as a combined session below), it is not possible to take both on the same day, as you will need time in-between to practice your new skills. 

Please Note: If you are interested in training two or more dogs, whether they are litter mates or just house mates, please sign them up for classes or workshops individually. We do not recommend having both dogs in the same class, as they will be more successful building confidence on their own, learning to rely on you, instead of their pack mates.

NEW CLIENTS, PLEASE NOTE some workshops may not be appropriate as a first-time training session. Prior to enrolling in this workshop, clients new to 2SpeakDog should contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. / 804.440.2498. New client registrations submitted without approval may be cancelled. Thank you for your cooperation in making sure your pup’s training is the best it can be!

Regarding Dogs and Babies: all Walking Workshops are open to those who have completed the Dogs and Babies "Fostering a Happy Pack" Part I Seminar; training will be specific to Dogs and Babies Part II.
