Having problems getting your dog to walk nicely on a leash? Pets Training and Boarding takes a look at this common pet problem with some hot tips on leash walking.
on the Leash
1. Never been correctly trained
3. Badly use of training devices
4. In the company of other dogs
The key is consistency and making a pledge that you will not allow your dog to pull on the leash regardless of the circumstances. It’s also important that all family members are on-board with the new approach, as allowing one family member to accept the pulling, will confuse your dog. If you have a larger dog, consider investing in a halti-like device that straps around their noses. These devices, when used correctly, are a wonderful tool in helping stop pulling in a soft and gentle way.
If your dog is pulling to the point of strangulation and they have been permitted to walk like this for a long period of time, professional advice might be needed to completely stop your dog exhibiting this behaviour. Once the behaviour becomes a habit it can be much harder to break. However, with the right advice your dog will be walking with a nice loose leash in no time at all. Remembering that it is not good for your dog to choke themselves while walking, it also can cause owners to become frustrated harming the wonderful bond that you share.

HOW TO STOP
It’s not an uncommon sight at many off leash areas around the country…dogs behaving badly! From unruly behaviour such as jumping or pulling on the lead, to excessive barking and roaming, some dogs and their owners are in desperate need of advice.
“Some dogs are in need of training and understanding to help them adjust to the human world they reside in,” Luana Osmani, from Pets Boarding & Training says. “Commonly it will be certain triggers that will cause a dog to behave badly, or the lack of knowledge of how to prevent and reduce the problem.”
Some of this bad behaviour is battled in lonesome times at home and away from preying eyes of other owners. These behavioural problems can leave many owners scratching their heads over what to do. With some turning to the endless, and sometimes unreliable, information on the internet.
“Bad manners can be described as any annoying or unpleasant behavior a dog is exhibiting,” Luana says. “This can be anything from jumping on guests, barking at strange dogs, pulling on the lead and the like.”
The key with all bad behavior is to first recognize that there is a problem, and secondly to make a promise to understand and solve it. The longer you leave an undesired behavior, the longer it can take to rectify.
It’s also about being realistic, especially when your expectations of your dog change. Cute puppy behavior, such as jumping and licking, is not so adorable from a 45kg fully grown dog. A professional dog handler can give you correct instruction on how to resolve your pet problems in a gentle and nurturing way.
“It’s advisable to only seek professional advice when it comes to the behavior of your dog,” Lunana suggests. “Self-diagnosing your pet’s problems on the internet can lead to more issues, enlisting the expertise of a dog handler or trainer is a must.”
Common doggy complaints;
- Pulling on lead
- Not listening
- Will not respond to training with distractions (AKA off leash area or other dogs)
- Excessive barking
- Pushing past people in doorways
- Destructive behavior
- Aggression around food and bones
- Begging around food
- Food stealing
“The good news is this can all be prevented and helped with training,” Luana smiles. “With a little understanding and work you can really iron-out any behaviour you want.”
A well-trained dog is a happy dog. It is evident that all dogs thrive at training. It is not only good for their brains but also their general wellbeing.
