How-To Teach Your Dog Loose Leash Walking


Make every walk a better experience for both you and your dog with these tips on loose leash walking by Dog Trainer Rachel Sample. Loose leash walking helps prevent your dog from pulling on their leash during walks. To begin, Rachel recommends checking the placement of the leash on your dog's neck. She uses her Mendota Leash because the design allows her to keep the leash at a comfortable height on her dog's neck. Training treats are also useful when practicing leash pressure and Rachel recommends having a few in your pocket as you move. For more tips and techniques, watch Rachel's How-To.
