Training Tips: Positive Leash Training – Guide Your Dogby Coach Lilly 7.29.15
Guide Your Dog, Don’t Let the Dog Guide You
By directing your dog and correcting him through tightening or loosening your grip on the leash your dog will quickly learn who’s boss. If the dog is pulling uncontrollably consider using a shorter leash which you will allow you a tighter reign. By letting the dog walk in front, you are signaling that he is the pack leader. Either keep the dog close at your heel or slightly behind you so he doesn’t think he is leading the way.
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.
