    Silky leash vs Loose leash training?

    Okay, maybe this is a stupid question, but I would like to know the answer. Is there a difference between silky leash and loose leash training? If there is a difference, what is it?

    Nope, no difference. Silky leash is just a method in teaching loose leash walking. LLW is a vague term to describe the type of walking dogs are trained to do.

    Silky leash is just a different approach, but has the same end result. Loose lead training usually refers to capturing the dog when it's next to you with a clicker (at least to me), but can be used to refer to any method that teaches loose lead walking.

    Personally I prefer the silky leash method, but they both work just as well. (as far as I know anyway)

    I use a combination of both methods and it works well until my little scatterbrained pup decides to get nervous about a lady or a car down the street two blocks away.
