Successful Lead Walking Tips

Discover our top tips to improve your walks

Do you spend your walks being dragged around the streets?

You thought walks would be the most enjoyable part of living with a dog but currently they're a right pain in the arm!

It's not quite the lifestyle you were planning and it's easier to leave your dog at home than be pulled in every direction.

Don't panic - it's pretty common!
Pulling on the lead is probably one of the most common areas we help people overcome with their dogs.
Let's face it, being placed on a lead and harness is quite unnatural, so from our dogs perspective - why not pull?

There are many quick fixes out there, but none are more successful than training spending time strengthening your relationship and teaching your dog to want to hang out near you and not pull as much.

What if I told you there were better ways to tackle pulling on the lead than just yanking them back!

WHY your dog pulls
