Real World Practice Group

Park Pals - Practice Group


Welcome! This is the main page for Tuff Pup Training's Park Pals practice group. Our practice walks are an additional opportunity for participants of the Tuff Pup Training programs to practice with their dogs in a supportive environment while out in the "real world". These walks are a chance to have practice partners for B.A.T (Behavior Adjustment Training)  and L.A.T. (Look At That) training exercises as well as practice for eye contact and loose-leash walking. We hope the training walks will be a place to share ideas and sharpen training skills with other people interested in modern, fun and humane training methods for reactive behavior issues. 

As you scroll down you can find a info on making the most of the practice walks, handouts of fundamental skills and links to helpful blog posts.

Participation in practice walks is $10 per practice walk and you can sign up and pay for walks through the scheduling app embedded on this page below.
