Need to see more examples of leash training with different dogs?

Teaching your dog to walk without pulling can be one the most challenging parts of training a dog! While every dog is different there are some basic concepts that you should know. In this video, Nina the 6 month old LA-SPCA rescue dog, learns how to walk nicely on the leash and I’ll demonstrate how simple it is to teach a dog without using a prong collar, choke chain or shock collar.

    I don't normally comment on vids but this one was super helpful – MUCH more helpful than anything I've read in a book or on the web. Would be great to see more walking videos for dogs with different temperaments (I.E. a shy, timid dog like mine who also pulls). It's great to know that tugging back on the leash isn't the only option to correct them.

    I know this is an old video, but if someone could help me it would be great. I’m dog sitting a dog who pulls a lot, but I don’t know how to teach him to stop because he’s not interested in treats or looking at me at all, I can’t get his attention. The only thing he cares about is running and smelling stuff.

    I really need help, hopefully someone can respond. I have two energetic, playful and young dogs, and they’re a mess on walks. Mostly they want to play with each other and they run around when I’m trying to walk. If I hold them short on each side of me, they just pull towards each other and this will last a whole 1 h walk. Can I do something about this in a “nice” way or is the only option for me to get really mad at them?

    My puppy walks by my side without a leash as long as I have her attention, I would like to make her stay close to me no matter what. Without the leash how would I do that

    Thanks for your awesome video. I have a four month old active Vizsla pup in New Zealand and I will do this from now on. He's super smart and now I'm educated we can practice walking nicely on the lead together.

    My new dog Jaida looks almost exactly like the dog in this video. I got her from an animal rescue. I had to order a thunder leash that turns into a harness before I dared taking her for a walk because I was afraid she would pull her head out of the leash and run away. And boy was I right, I put the harness leash on her and as soon as we got outside the house she was jumping five feet in the air trying to get out of it. I had to drag her along most of our 7 1/2 minute walk. I’m going to have to work with her one on one and not bring my other dog with us because she ruins his calm morning and evening walks.

    I have a 7-year-old dog, and I'll be honest, my husband and I did a terrible job of leash training him. He's a prince in all of his other behaviors but he pulls like a madman. We also just got a puppy. Any tips on leash training them at the same time?

    Sniffing on the ground is a huge issue I never hear anyone talk about in leash training videos. That is a huge issue for me. Especially living in town. It's not as big of an issue in the country when I work with them there were there is less distractions.

    Thank you for not using force methods and for showing that there are other ways as well. Very uplifting.

    Can i use kibble as reward? And maybe not feed in the morning yet before training for my dog to be more interested in the reward? Or do you advice a better treat? Thank u!

    I just got a Jack Russell/Corgi mix and he's about 8 years old and does not listen at all. It's previous owner was a 95 year old man who fed this dog from the table namely sausages. At his seniors home all them would feed this dog people food. This dog has never had discipline. I recently tried to walk him and for some reason on the leash he is aggressive and tends to go after other dogs pulling the leash and lunging. Today he nipped at a dog as we passed by each other.

    I was told by someone who has taken care of this dog that he is different and more calm with other animals off leash. So he will not listen to me I have to try and force him to sit by gently pushing his bottom downwards as I hold with other hand under his snout. I really don't know what I am doing and I am unsure if this is correct. He begs for table scraps like it's going out of style. The worst part is we have an arrangement to take this dog to the 95 year old man at the home every Sunday so that the old fella can see this dog but the old guy is going to continue feeding him wrong food and probably undue anything that I have done with this dog at my home.

    It was the owners of the home that kicked his dog out of the place because they don't like the dog but the dog is allowed to visit every Sunday. My question is, if I continue to push on his behind with the treat raised above his head to force him to sit and then as he sits I say SIT then as he completed the task successfully I give him the treat, will this work or am I doing it wrong??
