Pulling on leash is probably one of the most common reasons dog owners seek the assistance of professional dog trainers. It’s no fun being pulled around by your dog, and can be very dangerous for both of you! Here are two great videos on teaching a dog to walk nicely on a leash. Both are clicker training videos, and each video features a different type of reinforcer.
The first is a video showing how you can use a tug toy to teach heeling. If your dog is a toy maniac, this may work even better than food treats!
The second video involves using a clicker and food rewards to train a lovely loose leash behavior. If your dog is a “food hound” and loves working for a yummy treat, this technique will be a fun and fast way to make your dog’s loose leash behaviors the best in the neighborhood!
