Dog Training tip – Curing Reactivity with Loose Leash Walking

When teaching your dog to walk without pulling, keep the leach short but not tight to put your dog into the position you want, while still giving enough slack to let him know that he’s doing the right thing.

Leash pops on a training car can be given for any excitement or reactivity so long as your timing is good; ie when your dog is THINKING about it.

Signs to look for:
๐Ÿ‘‰ ears forward
๐Ÿ‘‰ head up
๐Ÿ‘‰ staring
๐Ÿ‘‰ tense body
๐Ÿ‘‰ prancing
๐Ÿ‘‰ quickening pace
๐Ÿ‘‰ whining, grunting

If your dog is barking and/or rearing up and lunging, you’ve waited too long and should walk away from the distraction to give your dog the chance to calm down again.
