The first thing to remember about training your dog to walk on a leash, is that it is not the tool that makes the carpenter.
There are tons of leashes out there, and a favorite trick of the retailers is to sell you some fancy new trick.
And be prepared to experiment with different collars or harnesses.

 

 

Leash training is dependent on THREE things:

  1. Your Foundation

  2. Attentiveness

  3. Willingness to please

 

Dog Training

Start slow, when building a foundation.

Build it up step by step.

Start with a simple drag of the leash

Then just hold the end and walk it off with your dog

Lure them to you with a treat

Reward, or pay them, when they come

 

Don’t make it about the leash, make it about you.

Dog  Leas

If your dog is fighting the leash, then build foundation in a quiet setting Gradually increase the amount of exposure to other things If you build your dogs energy by working them up, you will pay a price

 Start slow, calm and relaxed.

Hook the leash on your dog and let them drag it around Always supervise a dog dragging a leash

Literally, walk before you run

If you have a reactive dog, consider using a basket muzzle.
This will build your confidence knowing they cannot hurt someone, and it will reduce the stress of the situation

Be patient with dogs that are more of a challenge

Literally, walk before you run
