GDA20: Teaching Your Dog to Walk on a Leash

 Walking on a leash is not something that just comes naturally to dogs, it’s something that they have to learn – and it’s our job to teach them.

There’s lots of different ways to train your dog not to pull on leash and what works best for one dog and handler might not be the best choice for another. It often takes some experimentation and trial and error to discover what works best for your dog.

In this episode I go over a few of the more common techniques to achieve loose leash walking that you can try with your dog so that you can enjoy your walks together.
