    What techniques do you use to leash train your dog? (Weekly Topic Inspiration)

    Dogs will often pull at the leash, fight wearing a collar or harness, or bark at other dogs during a walk if they aren’t properly leash trained. What advice and tips can you offer on getting a dog to behave for her walk? Share your experience with us in a Hub for this week’s Weekly Topic Inspiration.

    Dogs love to move, so the best way to stop the dog from misbehaving on the leash is to stop moving forward and use a word of reprimand, like "Hey!" or "Stop!" or "No!" The dog is only allowed to move forward when it behaves well on the leash.  Doggie quickly gets the idea that you are the boss and settles down for a peaceful walk.

    allow the dog to wear the leash in the house to get used to the idea of something being attached to her.  Step on the leash for correction, this gets them used to the idea that when there is a pull, to stop and look up at you.  Instead of making them listen or using cruel methods to make you dog do as you say.  I have 2 that don't use leashes period.
