LOOSE LEASH TRAINING FOR BEGINNERS
My dog ALWAYS pulls on his leash! How can I train him not to?
So, you’ve decided to take the dog on a leisurely afternoon stroll around the neighbourhood—relaxing, right? Not for much longer, because Charlie’s decided to take you on a walk of his own, pulling SO hard on his leash that you're stumbling over the pavement, praying that no one's around to see your awkward little sidewalk dance. The team at Stylish Hound knows precisely what you're going through, so we've put together some tips for anyone wondering how to teach their dog to not pull on their leash.
Have you tried a front leading harness?
A no-pull harness is a wonderful investment for dog owners who are attempting to leash train their dogs. When our four-legged friends get overly excited or even anxious during a walk, one of their first instincts is to run forward quickly. If your dog isn’t wearing a properly fitted harness, the pulling can exert pressure onto your dog’s neck and cause pain or even breathing difficulties.
When you fit your dog with a no-pull harness, very light pressure is applied on the dog's chest to assist them in turning into you and following your lead. These harnesses put zero pressure on your dog's airways, meaning your pup will enjoy easy breathing and a full range of shoulder movement. These are easily the BEST dog harnesses on the market to stop pulling.
