Train Your Dog To Walk on a Loose Leash

Make walking with your dog the pleasure it's supposed to be!

Strolling with your dog in the morning can either be one of the highlights of your day or a reason for your sore shoulders.

To ensure this activity always lies in the former category, you can train your dog to walk on a loose leash aka walking with the leash slack.

1. Begin in the backyard. Train your dog to walk on a loose leash by starting indoors where there are fewer stimuli.

2. Try engaging your dog in training games in a calm environment, preferably in your backyard or driveway.

3. When your dog has mastered the previous level, you can begin walking it in a single street outside your house.

4. When walking around the neighborhood, engage your dog in the same training games to keep it focused.

5. When your dog has lived up to expectations on all previous levels, you can take your dog to a highly stimulating environment like a park and make these skills permanent.

Lastly, we recommend taking your time with the process, as each dog has its own learning pace, and it works best when dog owners match this pace.
