Walking your dog should be a fun, relaxing activity you get to enjoy with your pup. But it’s not uncommon to feel embarrassed if it’s your dog taking you for a walk instead of the other way around. If you feel jealous watching your neighbors walk their well-behaved pups while yours pulls you any way he pleases, then this video is perfect for you.
Good leash walking etiquette not only makes your walks with your pup more pleasant, it also keeps you and your dog safe. If you allow an excited dog to lead you anywhere he wants, he can direct you both into a dangerous situation, and tugging on the leash can cause injury to either one of you. Teaching your dog to walk calmly may seem impossible, but with a little time and patience, he’ll be the envy of your neighborhood! Canine Behavior Expert Jessica O’Neill gives us quick, easy-to-follow tips to keep your dog safely by your side, focused, and out of the street.
