Enjoying a nice walk with our dogs can be one of the best parts of dog ownership. But trouble with leash manners can sometimes get in the way. If you and your dog want to get back in sync, check out our Walk This Way class! This three week course that focuses on one thing: loose leash walking. Learn the basic mechanics of leash handling, practice changing speed and direction, and improve their behavior around distractions like people, other dogs, and even the great outdoors.
*If your dog is fearful or becomes overly excited (barking, lunging, or excessively pulling) when they see dogs, people, or other things in their environment, they may not be appropriate for this class. Reactive Rover, Wallflowers, or another class might be a better fit. If you need help determining which class is right for you, please call our Community Behavior Department at 502-253-2883.
Please bring a copy of your dog’s most recent vaccination records to the first night of class. Vaccinations required are rabies, distemper/parvo (titers accepted for dogs over two years of age) and bordetella. There have been documented cases of Canine Influenza in our area. The Kentucky Humane Society strongly recommends that the Canine Influenza Vaccine and subsequent booster vaccination be given prior to attending behavior training class. Learn more. Students who elect not to get this vaccination may attend class but will be asked to sign a waiver.
Payment is required at registration. As all funds go back to care for the animals in our shelter, all fees are non-refundable.
