qFlat Collar (buckle or Martingale style) or a well-fitted traditional style harness during the class. No head halters or Easy Walk harnesses during runs but they may be used to and from as needed.
qLeash: A 6-foot light-weight leather or nylon leash (no chain or retractable). All dangling items, rings, charms, poop bags holders must be removed so as not to distract the dog.
qLong Line: A 10-15-foot long line or Flexi lead (in addition to not instead of the six foot).
qToys and/or treats: HIGH VALUE toys and treats! For example: If your dog loves the tennis ball or the rope…bring it, not the squeaks he doesn’t play with; If your dog loves chicken but is not jazzed about snausages, bring the chicken… bring a few things in case what you thought was going to work, doesn’t. Also if your dog likes food, please bring several small treat pieces for the training.
qHungry & Motivated Dog: Please either don’t feed your dog in the morning, or feed a reduced meal so that your dog is hungry and motivated. Also if you have a high energy dog, please don’t burn them out with a long hike or play session before the class.
