Last month, we explained how to teach your dog to check in with you on your walks. Now, learn how to train your dog not to pull on the leash! We call this behavior loose-leash walking.
No one enjoys walking with a dog who constantly pulls. Its terribly unpleasant and in some cases can be downright dangerous. Dog owners often end up avoiding walking with their dog altogether, which inadvertently can make the problem worse the less often the dog gets to go for a walk, the more excited he becomes when he eventually does get to go, the faster he walks, and the stronger he pulls! Its a vicious circle.
