How To Teach A Dog Not To Pull On Leash: Leash Walking

    This has been very helpful to me. My dog pulls on a leash and lunges into people’s front yards whenever she smells something interesting, but after only two days of this training I have noticed a significant improvement with her leash manners. For those who are having trouble: if your dog isn’t willingly focusing on you, you are in a too high distraction area, plain and simple. Start off with this exercise inside, and then when your dog has mastered that, progress to the yard, then on your driveway, then maybe a quiet street. The dog has to have a really solid foundation of focusing on you before it can do it in a high distraction area. At the beginning you will be feeding pretty much a constant stream of treats into the dog’s mouth when they are in the correct position, but after a while you can cut down to a few each minute. Also don’t expect to get anywhere on your first few walks because you will have to either stop or turn around every few seconds.

    my dog gets so excited as soon as she sees the leash, i can not get her to listen, everything just goes over her head,, once the leash is on, she drags and bounds to get out of the door,,i can’t walk her because of this, she is to big for me and over powering at the time, my son or husband have to walk her,, any ideas

    What if the dog doesn’t want to move at all and screams when the leash goes on?

    Thanks for this. I came into “roommates” with a very, VERY large puppy. He’s pit/st.bernard/mastiff and while he sits ok (still working on that) he doesn’t like the leash. He was dumped just off of Rt 66 and that’s how we got him. He’s about 4 months and over 50 pounds. So I’ll try this. (If you want to see pictures there are a couple on my google.

    Hi hi! Have you ever tried – Carkerakita Hound Master (should be on google have a look)? Ive heard some extraordinary things about it from my mate who got cool training results with their dog.

    About how long does it take before the dog will start doing this almost every time or every time successfully without the treat?

    I’m feeling so much more at ease watching your videos for leash training my two dogs. Your methods are calm and respectful of the dog, wich is something I really appreciate! Thank you for such a great channel. If you’re ever in the Boston area and want to film footage of helping my boyfriend and I to better train our two fur babes, let me know! 🙂

    I’ve been doing this for a while! Now all I have to do is to start turning my body and “pretend” that I’m going to turn around. He anticipates my turning around and slows down to catch up before he reaches the end of the leash, then I cancel my turn and keep walking forwards. I did it for 3 days now, and he has almost given up trying to walk ahead of me! :)))
