Extreme Leash Pulling

Extreme Leash Pulling

If you are like most dog owners, your four-legged friend tends to take you for walks on most days. Pull, pull, yank, pull, and fall flat on your face. Sound familiar?

To put your dog at your side instead of 8 feet ahead, here are a few suggestions:

-  Obedience training for you and your dog
-  Discovering alternate leashes and collars – such as a harness or prong collar
-  Reward your dog when he does walk at your side
-  Stand completely still when your dog starts to pull and praise when he doesn’t

Most importantly, have patience! It may take some time, but your dog WILL get it.
