Pulling On The Lead

Contrary to popular belief, dogs do not pull on the lead to dominate or because they want to be pack leader. They pull because they are outside where the world is full of exciting smells for them to explore. Also, people do not make ideal walking companions for dogs as our pace is naturally a lot slower than a dogs.

  • If you are overpowered by your dog's pulling and cannot start the teaching process for fear of being pulled over, use a harness where the lead attaches to a ring at the front of the harness. This naturally takes the pull out of a dog by turning him from the chest when he pulls.
  • When he pulls, immediately stop and stand completely still until the lead relaxes. When the lead is nicely relaxed, proceed on your walk. Repeat this as necessary.
  • You can also reinforce your dog’s decision to walk close to you by giving him a motivating reward when he is by your side.
