DOG TRAINING EQUIPMENT
We recommend using a collar, leash and treats (if you have the ability to carry them).
We do NOT recommend:
1. Harnesses...unless it's a no pull harness
2. Gentle Leaders...due to the cardios
3. Retractable Leashes...these are dangerous
**Should you use an exercise belt that connects your dog to it for you to go hands free, please practice all basic obedience as much as possible to ensure a safe workout.
***Should you use a prong collar or choke chain, please make sure you learn to use them properly beforehand.

THANK DOG! MOBILE TRAINERS
If you would like help from an actual Thank Dog! Instructor to get commands 1 - 4 down (they have a lot of techniques to choose from if one way isn't working).
This one on one would only be for 30 minutes, unless otherwise stated and you will walk out of there with not only a packet to follow but confidence that your dog will be on his/her way to mastering the app. Woohoo!!
