  1. The Gentle Leader?

    Dog Training Forum
    So I have had my little Leo in training since basically 12 weeks old. The training has been in Petco puppy classes because I wanted him to get socialization down too. He is actually freakishly brilliant and has learned all commands very well, training at home isn't as much as it SHOULD be...
  2. Harness Problems

    General Dog Forum
    Ok- This is probably the quest for the impossible- but I am wondering if anyone has found a harness that works well for a dog that pulls? We are def. still trying to train her out of this, but sometimes if the treat isn't of high enough value or if the cat/squirrel is just too tempting Tandy...

    My wife and I recently got a new Golden Retriever puppy a little more than a month ago and have been training her ourselves. She is about 14 weeks old and is doing well, but I was hoping to get some advice from some seasoned veterans in terms of making the walks more enjoyable. I've read a...

    Dog Sports/Show Forum
    Hey everybody! Thanks to the fabulous advice from forum members, Baron and I are going to investigate the wonderful world of dog scootering and possibly bikejoring. I just ordered his harness from Alpine Outfitters as well as the double scooter line, though it will be awhile before we can...
  5. encouraging leash PULLING behavior!

    Dog Training Forum
    I suppose this is a appropriate for training, but this has something to do with exercise as well (a big interest of mine). Exercise, I think, is tremendously helpful in making life with a dog livable. Unfortunately, we are sluggish, unfit sloths by comparison to even the most average, plain...

  7. Scared to leave the house

    Dog Training Forum
    I just got my puppy about a week ago, and things are going great. Potty training is coming along fine, I've been teaching him basic manners and he walks good on a leash for a puppy his age. Every time he pulls we stop until he sits and the leash is loose. My problem is, when I take him out of...
  8. Pulling on the Leash After Other Dogs! HELP!

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    I have a 6 month old Great Dane/Italian Mastiff and he is great except on walks. I live on a street with about 7 dogs and whenever we go for a walk, if he sees a dog he pulls to go over to them. He has broken several leashes from pulling. He is around 110 pounds and growing quickly and I just...
  9. Alternate breeds suitable for lightweight sled pull, skijoring, etc?

    Dog Training Forum
    Hello, I always hear about the usual northern sled breeds, but what other breeds might be suitable and interested to be trained in these kinds of winter activities? Not for racing or actual work, but just to help foster a bond and exercise them physically and mentally.
