How to stop my dog pulling on the lead

Having a dog that walks nicely on the lead is one of the most important behaviors to master.  Let’s face it, if your dog pulls on the lead every time you go for a walk, the Dog pulling with chest harnessenjoyment quickly fades!

One of the most common mistakes I see people making when trying to stop their dog from pulling, is to use a chest harness.  And yet, if we want a dog to pull a sled (or a horse to pull a plow) as strongly and effectively as possible, we use a chest harness! A chest harness will simply allow your dog to use his strength most effectively against you.

Much of the other advice commonly given also will simply not work.  Perhaps you have tried some of it.

We can show you how to have a well-behaved dog that is a pleasure to take for a walk – which means you are likely to take your dog walking much more often!
