All dog owners love exercising their dogs but they hate walking them. Why is this so? This is because they usually encounter many problems during their regular dog walks. One of these problems is that their dogs keep on pulling on their leashes.
Of course, you may have considered walking your dog without any leash but please bear in mind that doing this can be quite dangerous. Instead of changing your walking strategy, the best thing that you can do is to train your dog to walk on a leash. Here are some of the tips that you should know about:
- Train him in a peaceful area.
If possible, try to start your training in a place that is free of distractions. Please bear in mind that your dog’s attention span is quite short so simple things can easily distract him. It is recommended that you let your dog understand the basics of walking on a leash first before you introduce distractions to him.
