The Well Heeled Way® Calming Cord™ custom-fit slip harness will end your struggles with leash behavior and help you establish a stronger relationship with your dog. 

We at The Well Heeled Way® know what you are going through. Time and again we have seen dogs take total control of their person. We know you are busy. We know you may feel that your dog simply can’t be trained or it’s too frustrating. Maybe you have already tried another course and it just didn’t work. But we are here to assure you that we can help. We know dogs, and we have the tools and methods to ensure your success. 

With a bit of patience and repetition, we will help you achieve a healthy relationship with your dog. Our goal is to train you on how to condition your dog to be an attentive and willing follower using positive reinforcement – not punishment. You will learn:

  • How to remove frustration from the interactions with your dog.
  • Desensitization methods so your dog doesn’t bark at everything.
  • The Well Heeled Way® 7 Core Disciplines that are backed by behavioral science.
  • Why using our custom TWHW Calming Cord™ Slip Harness is the best dog-walking tool you’ll ever experience.

Buy the course which includes our slip harness and see nearly instant results: better behavior, fingertip control, and an overall happier relationship that lets you enjoy your dog!
