Training Tips: Positive Leash Training – Emotional Supportby Coach Lilly 9.25.15
Besides the common rules of using short leashes, firm commands and a dominant disposition there is one more extremely important aspect of leash training that you cannot forget. Positive reinforcement is an important aspect of training that shouldn’t be overlooked. Your dog may walk two steps behind you, not even wince at a squirrel and be a perfect angel during playdates but if he has never had reward or emotional support for his good behavior then although he has been trained his ego may have been trained out of him as well. It is important to keep this in and show your dog the love and appreciation that he needs.
Positive Leash Training is part of series that DoggieNation will be sharing throughout the next few months in recognition of Responsible Dog Ownership Month, which begins September 1.
