Many working dogs are now also pet dogs, as such, they also need to be taught the life skills to help them be great pets alongside their working skills. One of the most important things to teach a working dog is when to work and when not to.
Self-employed hunting is one of the most challenging things to deal with, teaching your dog to Social Walk means that you can maintain your hunting and working skills but also teach your dog when it is appropriate to be hunting and when it is not. This means that you can all enjoy going out for a walk safe in the knowledge that you are not undermining your working skills.
Join us for this superb masterclass with Leanne Smith where she teaches us how to train your working dog to relax whilst out for a walk, rather than hunt.

Great course. This is one area we have been struggling with so lots to go away and do! 🙂
First Masterclass I Have Watched
Really great video, so well explained and really easy to understand. I have only just joined LWDG and this was the first masterclass I have watched, so now very interested to go and look at the other masterclasses and have a go putting the training into practice!
I Recommend Everyone To Watch This Masterclass
You recommended this masterclass to me Jo, and all I can say is ‘Wow’! It is so amazing and awesome. I attend regular Gundog training sessions, but this has never been explained/demonstrated so perfectly to me before. I have done bits of this training but to see it used in the setting of a walk is going to make a massive difference. It is no exaggeration to say that this is literally going to change my life! It is exactly what I need and I wish I could have drawn on this a long while ago. I recommend everyone to watch this masterclass, particularly if you have a strong hunting breed like a spaniel. My little girl is just like Doris.
It was really helpful to watch both the experienced dogs and then Doris who was knew to the training step by step visuals really helped.
Great Masterclass. Excellent seeing how it worked with Leannes dogs and also Doris.
Excellent Visual Representation
Excellent visual representation of what a social walk looks like and how connection can differ from dogs to dogs. It’s so important to know that and not expect every dog to be exactly the same!
