So, here is how things started. Yesterday I walked in the park, sat on a bench and just relaxing. Looking around, I started noticing a girl with her cute Corgi passing by. At first, they walked nicely side by side. After a while, a sparkling yellow butterfly took the dog’s attention. He started pulling his harness very hard to run after that butterfly, dragging his owner behind. The girl had a hard time struggling with her dog. I recalled myself having the same situation several years ago with my naughty dog. So, how to avoid this situation? How to walk your dog nicely on a leash? In this post, we will go through several key points and address the problem.
It is very important to have the right gear for your dog as they are super effective to keep the puppy under your control while keeping them safe and comfortable. A front-attachment harness should be proper to discourage dogs from pulling. Check out some stunning stuff here: dog walking harness. And make sure you choose the right size harness.
This is the second important thing to prepare as your pet deserves a small reward every time he/she follows your orders.
Before taking your dog out for a walk, it is important to understand why he/she pulls on the lead. Why do they always try to run away instead of following our lead? This is because something is getting their attention. That’s the key point! There are many distractions out there on the road which could possibly attract your curious dog. It could be a duck, a cat, a tree, other dogs… Therefore, if we are able to get their attention on us all the time, they will walk on our side with a leash. Although this is not an easy work, by training from time to time, probably we will build them a good habit. Below are some helpful steps on how to train a dog from pulling when walking.
So that’s it! I really hope you enjoyed the post and have a friendly and fun walk with your dog!
