    Dog Training Forum
    We have a new two month old Rottweiler with showing some strange behavior when walking on the leash. When we walk him going away from the house he plants his feet, lays downs, pulls, etc...basically not wanting to walk one foot. However, walking back towards the house he walks fine and lots of...
  2. 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...
  3. Tips for training dog to stop chasing squirrels while on leash?

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    My pup, about a year old, walks well on leash generally. However, when she sees a squirrel she has a little ritual she religiously observes: 1) staring, eyes glazed; 2) sitting/plopping down; 3) lunging at the squirrel. Since I live in a city and walk her around in parks, we encounter squirrels...

    I just spent a little time reading the training tactics thread. I'd like to know if anyone has had luck working on the leash training or dog on dog interaction?

  5. Dog too excited on some walks

    Dog Training Forum
    Hi! I have a mixed breed (possibly hound/shepherd?) female who is about 15 months old. Overall she is a fantastic family dog. She's great with other dogs, loves kids, and has been very easy to train. She's a little shy, especially when people she doesn't know come to our house, but she...
  6. Prong Collars VS Gentle Leads

    Dog Training Forum
    I've seen a couple threads on here about prong collars and a lot of people had a lot of different opinions, which is to be expected for such a controversial subject. I read a lot of yays and nays but didn't see many alternative solutions, just people saying their were 100 alternatives. (Keep in...
  7. Thoughts on off leashing & off leash training

    Dog Training Forum
    Hi everyone. I know many of you have had experiences with different types of dogs and different dog personalities, which I understand factors into whether a dog can be safely trusted off leash perhaps just as much if not more than training does. Can you tell me about your experiences training...

    Dog Training Forum
    I had two dogs already when I added the new puppy to the pack on the 20th. Two dogs I have are related, mother and son, both medium-sized, and they get along very well with no issues between them. The mother is fixed, but the son is not. Now about the puppy. I called about an add in the paper...

  10. Trouble with leash training

    Dog Training Forum
    Hello there, and this is my first dog post so I hope I get it all right! I had a Maltese Shih-Tzu for 15 years and it died 2 years ago. I recently decided to get a Border Collie. I love hiking and feel he'll make a great walking partner because of the type of breed. He's three months old now...
  11. Puppy leash training- am I doing it wrong?

    Dog Training Forum
    There are moments of brilliance when he walks right next to me, but other times, when he wants to wander away from me, and sniff stuff, etc. I have watched many Youtube videos on how to train walking on a leash without pulling. Stop moving, sometimes turn the other direction, bring him back...

    Attention All New Members
    I have a 1yr old Welsh Terrier. We got her at 6mos. She is a loving happy dog toward people and other dogs unless she's on a leash. It's horrible!!! She shrieks and barks at every dog, bird and sometimes people! I hold the leash tight so that there is no give on her harness. Otherwise she...

    Hi everyone, We just rescued an 18 month old saint bernard. We do have experience having a saint, but we are new to rescue. She's absolutely wonderful in the home. Is great with our cat. Seems to learn commands quickly. But that all goes out the door when we leave the house. She loves...
  14. Newbie- need leash training tips for puppy

    Attention All New Members
    I've got a 10 week old that I'm ready to leash train. He's used to a collar (cat collar w/ a bell- great idea if you too have a vanishing puppy). Any advice? The leash around his neck is scary to him right now, but I'm determined to train him to not pull. P.s. He's a lab/shepherd/terrier/boxer...
  15. Desperately needed leash training advice.

    Dog Training Forum
    So about a month and a half ago I adopted a 7 yr old Springer Spaniel from the local shelter. He'd been surrendered by his previous family because they literally knew nothing about owning high-energy dogs. He wasn't abused or anything, in fact they really really loved him. They just had no idea...
  16. Puppy Needs Help On Leash... Constantly Biting and Rolling!

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Hi! I adopted my puppy 6 weeks ago from a local shelter. At that time, I was told he and his litter mates were about 6 weeks old. Today I took him to the vet for his second round of shots and was told he was probably even younger since she thinks he is only about 10 weeks old now. Anyway, so...
  17. My dog loses her mind on walks when she sees other dogs or cats

    Dog Training Forum
    My dog used to pull on leash from our very first walk for no obvious reason. She used to be enthusiastic just for being out there and paid no attention to me. I could not catch up with her pace and it was utter frustration. After weeks of training (I stopped walking when she pulled and continued...
  18. I really need help... Leash training...

    Dog Training Forum
    Barley is my first puppy. She is a wonderful and intelligent little dog and I absolutely love her! Except for one thing. Walking her is awful. Here are just a few of her... "walking quirks": 1. She likes to just stop. Not because its a shady stop, not because she is tired. She just stops. And...
  19. Help! Dog refuses to walk on a leash.

    Dog Training Forum
    I recently adopted a one year old female Australian Shepherd. She is, in nearly every respect, the perfect dog. My wife and I looked at many different breeds before adopting, and decided that an Aussie was a good dog for us due to their intelligence, temperament and size. We were aware of the...
