If you had to guess what owners struggle with the most when they get a new dog, what would you say?
Leash pulling is by far one of the most common things I get asked to help with.
It can come as a bit of a surprise that for most dogs this is a behaviour that must be taught and practiced.
Unfortunately, when your once boisterous but manageable puppy has turned into a hard to control freight train, it becomes more than a matter of training.
It becomes a matter of safety.
We live in a part of the world where the sidewalks quite literally turn to ice for several months of the year. Sprains, breaks... or worse... can be the result of a habitual puller.
I've experienced wrenched shoulders myself.
Not to mention the wear and tear to your dog from years of leash or harness pulling.
But let's get one thing straight.
If you have a puller, they are NOT a bad dog. As I mentioned before, it's matter of TRAINING.
Your dog pulling on the leash is not trying to dominate you. Or control the walk. They just don't know how to walk on a leash yet.
I can help you enjoy your walks with your dog.
