Before I was a professional dog trainer, walking my dog was a struggle. Over time, I developed a way for walks to be relaxing, enriching, and fun. This 1.5 hour video is part of my Empowered Animals series and it has my best walking tips to transform the relationship with your dog.
Two of the major problems people have with their dogs are 1) pulling on leash and 2) reactivity on leash. These two problems are related and can be helped with the techniques in this video. Both ends of the leash get training in this practical video for trainers and pet owners. It takes two to pull, so training people and dogs together makes for a very effective solution.
I just want to send you a HUGE THANKS!! I adopted a spirited little 2 yr old Brittany recently. She was never trained to walk on a leash and pulled like crazy. It was starting to take a toll on my body. Your Walk With Me video and Ahimsa training manual have been a huge help. She is very smart and very sensitive and your techniques help me connect with and harness her innate intelligence. I also appreciate the methodical step by step demonstrations and the BAT leash techniques in the Walk With Me video. Just tonight, after only a couple days of leash training, she did not pull once. She gets it! --Catherine H.
