For dogs targeted by breed specific legislation, please bring a front-clip style harness (such as an Easy-Walk) and basket style muzzle (pro tip: a black Baskerville Ultra in size 4 fits most ‘pit bull’ type dogs.) We will practice using these tools for outdoor walks, and teaching the dogs to accept wearing a muzzle. They do not have to wear it for the whole class, but we do want them to see it as a positive thing, and not a punishment. See The Muzzle Up Project for more information on de-stigmatizing the use of muzzles. It’s a great program for dogs of any breed!

All “pit bull type” dogs must bring a muzzle and a harness if he or she is over 20kg. You must bring proof vaccination to class. We will practice getting the dogs used to wearing their muzzles for short periods of time during the class. We want to make wearing it as positive as possible for the dogs. Please wear appropriate footwear for training.
