How Do I Train My Dog To Walk On A Loose Lead?

Of the behaviours we expect our dogs to do on a daily basis, loose lead walking is by
far the hardest one to teach a dog to do. It is not a simple single behaviour. We need to
teach our dogs lots of different skills before they can learn to walk on a loose lead.

Moving forward is very reinforcing for a dog. Therefore, the number one rule for
walking on a lead is to never let your dog move forward if the lead is tight. Otherwise we
are teaching and reinforcing our dogs for pulling. Pulling is bad for their necks and it
isn’t much fun for us either.

Think about where you want your dog to walk relative to your body. Unless I
specifically ask for a dog to walk beside me, I am happy for them to be in front, behind,
on the left or on the right, just not pulling.
