walking on leash

  1. How often and for how long do you walk your dog?

    Dog Training Forum
    After an initial period where she balked a bit at having her walking harness put on, Tessa is now getting excited at the sight of the leash and harness coming out! Our walks aren't perfect yet (lots of distractions), but for the most part, she's doing so much better over the last week, than the...
  2. Walking on a leash and dog on dog reaction questions. Help.

    Dog Training Forum
    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? Our new rescue, Benji, is finally getting comfortable and there are a few things I'm noticing that I don't know how to work on. When...
  3. Puppy would rather lie down in the grass/on the street than take a walk

    Dog Training Forum
    My new 4-month-old puppy isn't exactly a go-getter (which is actually great for me, as I'm relatively low-energy and our temperaments seem to match nicely!). Part of it, no doubt, is because she's still recovering from abandonment, malnutrition, worms, etc., but I think it's also just how she...
  4. walking with front clip and back clip harness--how do you use dual leash?

    Dog Training Forum
    I just bought a Wonderwalker chest and regular harness, which I'd like to use with the Halti Training Lead. The lead has clips for the front and back, for maximum control (just while training). I'd like to teach him to stay in the heel position (right next to me). Previously we were using a...
  5. Italian Greyhound puppy trouble :(

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    2 weeks ago we got a 5 months old Italian Greyhound from a breeder and we have a couple of issues with her. She is shaking all the time when we are outside. She came from Fresno and now she lives in downtown San Francisco. I'm guessing all the noises are to much for her hence the shaking but I...
  6. Met our first dog aggressive dog today.

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Chico and I just got back from our evening walk. We walk in a large field where many people take their dogs. Everyone is really friendly and Chico is being socialized really well. He even has no issue going potty outside despite being pee pad trained first (don't worry I pick-up his poop unlike...
  7. Puppy sits or lays down and refuses to walk

    Dog Training Forum
    I have a 15 week old Chihuahua/Terrier mix puppy. She keeps having issues when I walk her. She usually does great on walks but recently, she has not done so great. I have a harness for her. She will walk a ways, then just sit down or lay down. Sometimes she is looking at something (in which...
  8. My new dog, I NEED ADVICE

    Dog Health Questions
    So we just got a new dog at home, and she is great! She is super friendly, quite, and she sleeps all night. But she is really afraid of a lot of things when we go on a walks. I don't know what to do. Normally, a person on a bike will come by, and we try to walk away, but she is still scared...
  9. Teaching a "Feral" Dog to Walk On Leash?

    Dog Training Forum
    How would one go about doing this? Because I've got two chow mixes who need to learn to walk on a leash. How they act when leashed: We've been using slip over the head leashes on them, that of course choke when they pull back on them. Causing them to panic, yelp, flip around, etc. I know the...
