  4. When to give up on loose lead training?

    Dog Training Forum
    There is nothing I can offer her. There is no treat or toy more valuable to this dog than dragging me around the neighborhood. And she is reactive to other dogs on the leash (lunging/barking) despite being pretty polite off lead. I finally gave up and use a head collar to walk her. She...

    I am overwhelmed by the different training philosophies. Are some better than others for different breeds? Different types of owners? Sasha is a baby. She's 1/2 Great Pyrenees, 1/4 Border Collie and 1/4 English Springer Spaniel. She came from a farm, but we live in the suburbs. I work a regular...
