How to Teach a Puppy to Walk on a Leash

Our approach

Teaching dogs starts with human learning. We begin every training session with an introduction to dog body language. No matter what training you learn, the ability to recognize your dog’s signals will make all the difference.

Personalized training plans

Before we train, we’ll make sure to learn your needs and goals for your dog. The first session takes place in your home, where Holmes will look for ways to set up your environment for maximum success. After every session, you’ll receive an individual training plan, and the option to check in with Holmes online before the next session. You can book as many sessions as you wish, and packages include a discount.
