"I create tailor made programs using my Take the Lead™ method to train dogs and educate
people because there is no greater thrill for me than when the 'lights come on' in a dog's and owner's eyes as
the message becomes crystal clear and everyone is in harmony for their lifestyle together."
– Karen Laws, The Ontario Dog Trainer – Preparing You and Your Dog for Your Lifestyle Together.
Take the Lead™ – a Tailor Made Approach for You and Your Dog
Take the Lead™ is an intuitive system of training that makes sense
to both people and dogs. Effective and gentle, this fun, firm and fair training method works with the dog's
instincts rather than against them. Working with Karen, your dog will achieve off leash
freedom, even with distractions, amazingly fast. You will enjoy the confidence
to let your dog off leash, knowing that he or she will return to you whenever you ask.
Most dogs perceive Take the Lead™ training as simple "pack cooperation"
and play. Therefore, they quickly shed rebellious behaviour, and give you more focus than
you imagined possible. Doesn't that sound like more fun than yanking and yelling with correction after correction?
Take the Lead™ Private Sessions and Tailor Made Programs
To fit your training needs and goals, Karen offers individual Pack Leader sessions
and tailor made package programs comprised of six sessions at your home or with Karen and her pack.
Take the Lead™ Workshops
Karen presents her Take the Lead™ approach in workshops to staff at Pet supply
outlets, veterinarian hospitals and shelters, professional trainers, students who want
to become professional trainers and to loving dog owners who want the freedom and enjoyment of a stress free relationship with their dogs!
Take the Lead™ Boarding School for Dogs.
