This article is for to all the canines and persons whose walks will be a lot more pleasing if the leash weren’t tight as a bowstring. Let’s just repair that, shall we? I’ll instruct you how to get your dog to quit pulling on the leash. To start with, you’ll see I say loose leash walking, or courteous leash walking, not heeling. Heeling is a formalized competitive workout, with the dog close to the handler’s left leg and attentively switched toward his/her. It’s not suitable for an hour’s afternoon walk: for beginners, if you’re the dog, by no means being allowed to sniff fairly much defeats the intention of the walk. For an enjoyable walk from your end, all you actually need is for the leash to stay slack and for your doggie to deal with you enough to turn with you and stop once you do. To me, a walk with my doggie feels like holding hands. The catch is, loose leash walking might be the toughest behavior for you to instruct and for most canines to master.
