Libby's Loving Leashes started with in home boarding and has evolved into primarily dog and puppy training. I value and strive to help create dogs that incorporate well into your family - loving and loyal.
Foster training - an in home training program offered for puppies under one year. Puppies are foster trained for a minimum of 10 days and are taught basic commands and manners. This helps both the puppies and owners start off on the right foot. Over 15 puppies have been foster trained at Libby's Loving Leashes and they have been sent all over North America as well as to Brazil and Dubai. To see videos of Comfort Retrievers that have been trained at Libby's Loving Leashes go to the following YouTube channel link: libbyrockaway.
Puppy Start - A great way to teach you how to train your dog and start off on the right foot with your pup. Lessons are 1 hour long in your home. Depending on the purpose, you will receive related articles and instructions to help guide you and your pup in the right direction.
Kids & Canines - An annual dog training class for children. This class is held during the summer, twice a week for one month. Kids will bring their own dog to class and teach them basic commands, they will also have a blast learning about and doing dog agility - an obstacle course for dogs. At the end of the month a competition is held for all the kids and their dogs to determine who has the most well behaved dog. This class not only teaches children how to train their dog, but it also creates a healthy relationship between the child and dog.
After putting down their beloved Irish Wolfhound, a family was discussing why dogs have such short lives. Suddenly their six year old, who had been silent, spoke up, “People are born so that they can learn how to live a good life – like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right? Well dogs already know how to do that, so they don’t have to stay as long.”
