I just listened to the podcast and, while I haven't yet tried the "no pull" exercise - I will! One comment made that really hit home with me was "we step around our dogs" - and I am very guilty of that so from now on, when one of them is in my way, I will ask them to move instead of me stepping over them.

When leash walking, I've been saying "easy" to Amber when she gets near the end of her leash, then if she keeps going, I wiggle the leash - if that doesn't work, I'll give a short tug. She has improved greatly but she still doesn't respect the leash and I know, from the podcast, that I've been guilty of letting her pull. I'll give an update after a few sessions using this method.

Thanks for the tips!
