Wow, what a professionally done FREE course on training your dog to walk at your heel, instead of tugging on the leash like a wild animal. I don’t often have this particular problem – he doesn’t pull on his leash – but my dog does like to walk in front (he’s the boss, he’s saying to the world).
The lesson is called “Train Your Dog to Heel on a Loose Leash“, by Dog Training London on the Curious.com platform.
This is a good step-by-step tutorial on how to train your dog to recognize you as the boss. From the moment you call him or her to you to put the leash on, to stepping out the door, and all the steps after that, this short course shows you how to train your dog to obey and behave. By correcting the bad behavior as it happens, and repeating that process as many times as necessary, your dog will eventually accept that you’re the leader.
From the video production, to the audio, and just the overall quality of the instruction, I really enjoyed this lesson. It’s free, on the Curious.com platform which I reviewed yesterday.
There’s also a good lesson by the same author on dealing with Separation Anxiety issues with your dog. More great free information.
