Tuff Pup Training's Real World Practice Group

Welcome! This is the main page for Tuff Pup Training's real world practice group. Our practice walks are an additional opportunity for participants of the Tuff Pup Training programs to practice with their dog's 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. 

As you scroll down you can find a calendar of upcoming training walks, a link to our facebook group, handouts of fundamental skills and links to helpful blog posts.

Participation in practice walks is $10 per walk. Payment can be made at the beginning of the walk. We accept cash, check or credit card (please know, we will not be able to make change for cash payments at the walking site).

  • It's helps to train along with other people who understand what you're going through and people who know to give you and your dog space to practice.
