Objectives for this training outing:

  • Walking in a parking structure and on public streets.
    • Dogs should exit the vehicle in a safe manner and under control, you might need a shorter leash length as well.
  • Traveling on Public Transportation
    • Dogs should board and tuck into a seated position next to the windows while you take a seat on the aisle.
  • Stairwells and elevators
    • Practice walking on stairs
      • Up and Down
      • Handrail on your left and your right
      • Dog on your left and your right
      • The dog should be walking with you on the stairs. Not two steps ahead or behind.
      • Riding in the elevator should be done with the dog in a counter position against the wall.
    • Ignoring pet dogs
      • You will be walking through the park surrounding the Arch. You need to keep a safe distance away from pet dogs.
      • It is good to have a canned saying for why they can not visit. “We are in ”
      • Also helps to have one for people that want to pet your dog. “We are in ”
    • Lines
      • Waiting in line can be hard for some dogs when you are first starting. Your dog should sit/stand by your side, down at your feet, or working on blocking behavior.
      • Escalators
        • You should work on being around escalators if they are not ready to ride on them. (If your dog needs help, please contact one of the trainers for a lesson or practice times.
      • Shopping
        • Beware of your dog and others. If it is crowded, a shorter leash may be needed.
        • Your dog should have a strong leave it (watch your dog for “shopping”).
        • We would like you to wait in line to ask a question if you are not buying anything.
        • A gentle leader may be useful for keeping control of your dog’s wandering nose.
