Teaching your dog to walk politely at your side seems easy, right? Newsflash: it often proves to be one of – if not THE most – challenging behavior for dog owners to teach their dog.
Sure, your dog may walk politely down his regular route, but does he try to bolt the instant he’s in a new setting? He’s not the only one!
Even if your dog responds flawlessly to cues like “Sit!” and “Down”… is letter-perfect in targeting and “Leave it!” exercises… has the most reliable recall… there are certainly times when he has gleefully dragged you all over the place. No more!
Walking Your Dog’s easy-to-follow instructions show you the simple steps needed to make your walks a pleasure! Inside you’ll find exercises and tips like:
- The proper way to walk with a loose leash, and how to make it fun and enjoyable for your dog.
- What to do when your dog lunges while on-leash – and how we encourage pulling by pulling or yanking back on the leash!
- How to teach him to ignore strangers, dogs, and other distractions that cause him to tug.
- When to encourage “go sniff,” how to teach this cue, and why it improves polite leash manners.
