Just snap on the old leash and head out the door, until. . .

• Your dog pulls you off your feet
• You meet an off-leash dog or stray
• You’re nearly hit by a speeding bicyclist
• You encounter a coyote or a snake
• A passing runner causes your dog to go ballistic

You learn simple commands to help you understand each other, find the best equipment, become aware of local hazards, and appreciate basic manners so you and your pup are welcome wherever you go.
