Great answer! I loved the videos too.
With all due respect, different breeds need different methods. I had a Lab Mix that was hard to control. The pinch collar worked in about a week. My beagles only required praise and a treat. I have a special yoke where I can walk two using 1 leash.
Thanks so much for all the info (especially about not bending over) and the helpful videos. I'm really looking for more loose leash walking than a strict command.
Have you ever watched the Dog Whisperer? Works for him. :)
Larry, I'd have to write a hub or a book, but in only one in 1,000 cases have I had to resort to a metal training collar to teach loose leash walking. People turn to those methods because the people fail - not because the method or dog does.
This was an unusual dog. We got him from a rescue group, after he had been kicked around a school yard by a bunch of kids. He thought the world of me. He took longer to train. Years later, he bit me, after biting one other person. Had to put him down
I'm so sorry Larry about having to put your dog down. How difficult. Kudos to you for giving him a good home while you could.
Larry - so sorry about your dog.
Thanks - I had tried using treats before but I wasn't really sure how to give her the treat while we were walking. I'll try dropping it between my feet.
Thanks for the advice. I had been using my dog's name when trying to get her to heel, but I'll give it a try with just "sit."
Your'e very welcome!!
Here's a video about the dog whisper you say works so well. Sure. Kick me and I'll behave. But it destroys trust.
I've trained over a thousand dogs with positive methods. Very high reactive agility dogs.
I'm sure Ceaser has trained 100 times that. Everyone knows he's the best. He doesn't mistreat dogs. He loves them!!
CM is selling a product - himself. Good TV shows aggressive dogs, so kicking them to react is what he does. I am not selling anything. :) University studies have shown positive methods to be more effective. We'll have to agree to disagree.
