Are you tired of your dog yanking you down the street every time you go for a walk? You're not alone and the good news is, it's not your fault. We've been approaching leash training all wrong!
With almost two decades of experience in dog training, I've discovered that the secret to success lies not in a short leash, but in a longer one. Sounds counterintuitive, doesn't it?
Throughout this video, I will walk you through my new approach, explain why dogs pull on the leash in the first place, and how giving them more freedom can ultimately teach them to stay by your side, with a lot less effort from you! I’ll give you my favorite exercises that I use with the dogs I train.
We'll also discuss the principle of habituation and how it plays a vital role in your dog's leash training, why your leash training may not have been working for you in the past, and what you can do about it!
Get ready to revolutionize your leash walking experience and achieve that harmonious walk with your dog that you've always dreamed of.
