Suggestion For Walking Upset Dog

by Ellen

When walking our young one we used a regular collar and she wears a back pack with a few full 16 oz cans of tomato sauce in the pockets on each side. I thought no way will this help but it completely helped.

She stopped pulling and completely paid more attention to my gentle words of heal, wait, sit, come and back, walk up etc.. She was amazing!!! Really helped her pay attention and not try to herd me or guess what I was going to want her to do. She was even tired when we got back home.

After awhile we walked somewhere else with just the leash on and she absolutely understood that she was to stay at my side or where ever I asked her to be. She would understand I was in control and she was safe.
