STOP LEASH PULLING
I hear it all the time, “ my walks are miserable”, “I’ve tried everything”
Some dogs pull only when they are focused on something. Dogs that walk on a loose leash most of the time but pull intensely when they see another dog, person, or prey item need to be taught self-control around their triggers. No amount of exercise or leash training will help the behavior around your dog’s triggers if the triggers are not present when you’re training them. It is important to identify what your dog is responding to, so you can train them to respond calmly.
You put food on the kitchen counter and turn your back to feed the baby or help your child with their homework. You turn around again and the food’s gone and your dog is standing next to the counter looking innocent enough, but he’s licking his lips. Sound familiar? It doesn’t take a detective to determine that you have a pooch who’s a counter surfer.
