Stop Pulling! Teach Your Dog To Walk On A Loose Lead

Has walking your dog become a nightmare? Does it resemble a game of tug of war? Are you desperate for answers? 

In just a few days, you can transform your lead walking frustrations into a serene walk in the park. Loose lead walking is the bane of many owner’s experiences with their dog. It’s frustrating and can even be dangerous. It is such a serious problem, causing many owners to give up and relinquish their dogs to shelters. 

The reason that owners struggle is because loose lead walking is not a simple behavior, nor is it a single one. There is a dynamic of multiple behaviors going on, and those need to be understood and practiced before the dog will willingly walk on a loose leash. 

In Stop Pulling! Teach Your Dog To Walk On A Loose Lead  you will learn a quick and easy method to train any age, size or breed of dog to walk calmly and quietly on a loose lead, walking will become more relaxed, reducing stress for dog and owner.
