Walking Your Dog Calmly

Walking Your Dog Calmly

Walking your dog is great opportunity for exercise, socialization and bonding. However, it’s not fun at all if your dog is dragging you around the neighborhood by his leash. Teach your dog to keep calm during walks. Train your dog to walk with a slack leash. Keep walking as long as your dog is at your side with some slack in the leash. If the leash gets taut, turn around quickly and head in the opposite direction. Continue this procedureso your dog understands that he needs to walk nicely. If your dog lunges or barks at other dogs or people, insist he sit down and stay there until he calms down. Acts of aggression or lack of control need to be managed every single time. Never yell at your dog or punish him while he is learning. Just insist that he sits when overly excited. Learn more from your recommended vet Marietta GA.
