"Heel": Learning the Basics

Join The Pet Lifestyle Coach®, Megan Blake every Saturday for tips, tricks, games, and more to try out at home with your pet! They’ve named their new training program, “We Begin Now” for a very special reason: to  express how we all can be full present in this “new now”, claiming each moment with gratitude and connection - something our dogs are experts at!

Your dog probably misses running around at the dog park, or they could be picking up on us all being “antsy” staying at home, or you may have even just adopted a new pup!  In any of those cases, you may be having a little trouble with “the heel,” your dog walking calmly at your side.  Megan and Super Smiley dog have some tips that can help: How to hold the leash, your arms, your walk… Everything!!!  Watch their short video and get some of Megan’s simple secrets for Heeling with your dog!

And, if you're missing our Sunday Group Dog Trainings in the park, don't fret! You can join Megan every Sunday at 4:30pm on Zoom for FREE virtual trainings. This is a continuation of Megan Blake’s Group Dog Training that we’ve hosted at LeBauer Park since our beginning.  As we all explore our “new now” together, the class is named "We Begin Now" Dog Training with Megan Blake.  Class is live and interactive - join us!
