Walking Your Dog with a Slack Leash

Walks are great exercise for your dog and gives you time to socialize and bond with your dog. However, walks are no fun at all if your dog is dragging you all around the neighborhood by his leash. Thus you need to teach him to walk with a slack leash. Walk your dog when he is alert but not overly excited. Insist he sit for a bit if he needs to calm down. Start walking and continue as long as your dog is walking by you with a slack leash. If the leash gets taut, turn around quickly and head in the opposite direction. Hurry along and call your dog so he needs to hustle to catch up. Continue this over and over as your dog gets the message that he needs to walk calmly at your side. Never yell at your dog or punish him while he is learning. Contact your Crown Point, IN vet to learn more. Click this link: http://merrillvillevets.com/
