Dog Walking Etiquette Tips
Use a leash – Your dog should always be leashed while on the walk. Even dogs with excellent recall can be spooked or upset by another dog, animal, or person. A leash gives you the control you need to keep your dog and others safe.
Scoop the poop – Picking up after your pet is another non-negotiable rule of dog walking etiquette. Plus, failing to clean up after your pet gives all dog owners a bad name.
Be respectful – The importance of respecting other people and other species cannot be understated. Don’t allow your dog to interact with other individuals or dogs without asking permission first.
Pay attention – Ultimately, you are responsible for your dog’s behavior and actions. Your dog should stay by your side at all times, don’t allow them to wander off the trail, and make sure they aren’t approaching others or wrapping their leash around people or objects. Training your dog to stop and sit at crosswalks is a good way to keep them focused while on a walk and may save their life should they ever get loose.

What People Say
"My dog adores Moira from K9 Academy. Since our first puppy class 5 years ago, through to CGC, agility and even dancing with Holly, we have learnt so much. Moira's approach is filled with lots of fun, heaps of praise, patience and a true understanding of dog behaviour. If I have to go away, I know that K9 Academy will look after my pets with the same love they give their own animals."Emily & Holly
"Moira and K9 Academy have been fantastic in waling us through training. Garmin passed his CGC Bronze with flying colours ! Moira is always ready to help and guide us through everything from house training and all the way up to our CGC tests and dance classes ! Garmin is a perfect gentlemen whom I can take anywhere with me and I owe it all to Moira and her team. He has a home away from home when I need to go away as well. Thank you !!!

"Moira and the whole K9 Academy team are amazing. When I started with Moira 2 years ago, never did I think I would be where I am today. From a reactive Australian Cattle Dog puppy who is now part of the new K9 dancing group, without Moira's continuous help in our early days and her incredible dedication, I would never be where I am now. I now have a German Shepard as well, and I cannot wait to see what lies ahead for her. You definitely can't go wrong training or boarding your dogs with Moira and the K9 team. Thank you is simply not enough for what you have done for me and my two special girls !!!

"My girls, Misty and Breeze, were a handful. Let's face it....no one wants to admit that their pets are not perfect angels but I had problems with jumping, leash pullling, no recall and the concern of leaving my girls home alone while I worked. Then I met Moira and her team and my prayers were answered. I am proud to say I am now able to walk my dogs on a single lead and even enjoyed a holiday at the beach with perfect recall. Moira is AMAZING and thanks to her encouragement, patience and advise I have well mannered girls and have fun training ! Thank you K9 Academy.
