Loose leash walking is the bane of many owner’s experiences with their dog. The same goes for professionals who work with these dogs. It’s frustrating, and even dangerous. It’s such a serious problem, many owners give up and relinquish their dogs to shelters. The reason owners struggle is because loose leash walking is not a simple behavior. There is a dynamic of multiple behaviors going on and those need to be understood before the dog will willingly walk on a loose leash. If you’re a trainer or owner who struggles with dogs pulling on leash, you know some dogs make it an art form. To that end, many “tools” have been marketed to “fix” the problem – prong collars, choke collars, head halters, and more. But hiding the problem behind a tool that doesn’t solve the problem. Let’s end the struggle together! Objectives Show you how to train dogs to walk nicely on a leash without any tools other than a relationship, some food, toys and play.
