Welcome to Seize The Leash
Once upon a time, Seize The Leash resided as a brick and mortar business in Tucson, Arizona. In March of 2015 the founder of this company moved to Florida and created a company name that better reflected her philosophy and practices in working with dogs and other species.
Seize The Leash in Tucson no longer exists, however, there is an online Academy set up where anyone in Tucson or anywhere in the world, can continue to learn how to train and assist their dog(s) via play, structured games, respect, honesty, empowerment and communication.
It's time for Seize The Leash to take on a new persona and bring trainers and dog owners together in the meat world and the cyber one.
For 12 years I did the online programming for a company called Wellcoaches where life coaches and their clients came together on the internet to create lives that worked, fitness and health programs and even trained these coaches in the Wellcoaches methodology.
Seize The Leash will now take a new place beside Wellcoaches as the place where dog trainers, coaches, mentors, behavior consultants, or whatever you call yourself, can find and assist owners from all over the world with their dogs via video coaching.
This will be much different then taking classes on line. There are some great places to do this depending on what you want to accomplish, but they are restricted to those who can devote the time and effort it takes for a 6 to 8 week class.
What Seize The Leash will offer is instant contact with a coach who can advise on your immediate issues whether they be behavior, training or even sports.
Eventually, like Wellcoaches did, we will offer extensive training in the Play Your Way methodology - more then what is offered now with the Canine Game Theory class.
Watch this site for updates and the start of the program !
In addition to the Canine Mentor Alliance, we are also offering a logging and training plan online application. We are nearly done with the programming for each site, so go ahead and register and they will both be available and running before January 20th, 2016.
What people do not appreciate is that every time a dog submits to pressure, whether subtle or overt, he is diminished. Probably the great majority of people who achieve their own ends by making their dog submit are not even aware of what they have done. It is a sad fact that a dog can be made to do many things by breaking his will. If he can be persuaded to give his assent freely and pleasurably rather than give into man’s pressure or clever techniques, he is not diminished.
