Loose leash walking might just be one of the hardest skills to teach - to clients or to our dogs. It’s one that impacts the dog’s life. Why is it so hard? Because it is a skill with many elements. Clients needs to get dogs out from day one - well before the dog has learned to walk nice on leash. So there’s often a reinforcement history for pulling. Humans can be inconsistent. And let’s face it, it can hurt when dogs pull on people. Emotions run high. Learn the many components and drills that can help you start saying, “Nailed it” and get training success for your clients and for your dogs.
