About Our Dog Training Classes

Dog Training Classes

       Does your dog pull and drag you around on leash, jumps on you, the kids and visitors, will not come when called, can not maintain a Sit with out getting up and moving  around before you can count to one, excessive barking. While attending The Leash Connection obedience class you and your dog will start communicating with each other, instead of wondering What *^&#%&%^*. Without your dog learning what those words coming from you mean, they hear wah, wah, wah nonsense.  With our instruction and the proper training equipment, you and your dog will learn basic commands to make life easier and enjoyable! We spend up to 10-15 years with our canine pals. Those years should and can be fun, not exasperating.
1. - Group Class is a great way for your dog to learn to behave in different places and around other dogs and distractions. Class is 4 Weeks. Puppy & Adult
2. - Private Classes if you have a unique schedule or special issues with your dog or just would like one on one instruction this is a great option. 

3. - Drop Off and Train where you drop your dog off like doggie daycare and pick                   him up in the afternoon. We will work with your dog four times daily on manners. We only take four dogs at a time for this service. No aggressive dogs for Drop off program. We can address this issue in private class.

About Us

image24

Meet Your Instructor

   

Carmen and Richard have been training dogs for over 43 years. In 1976, starting like everyone trying to get your dog to mind you, Richard discovered his true talent working with dogs. Carmen then learned from Richard and they have been helping dog owners through The Leash Connection since 1985. Before the internet (shock! the internet has not always existed?!) we sold supplies at AKC dog shows throughout the southeast. Being at the shows allowed Richard to compete at obedience trials offered at same location as conformation shows. Richard also competed nationally at Gaines events in 1980's and 90's. As the internet evolved the need for supply vendors at dog shows decreased. We did develop a website and was online selling supplies for 20 years. We also were no longer traveling to shows and focused more on training. Basic obedience, aggressive dogs, field dog training, Schutzhund work, herding dogs. All that work has led to a vast knowledge of training and we look forward to sharing it with you in our group classes. Teaching you to become a strong leader of the pack is our goal.

Come train. It's "Woof" a Visit!
