Rule #2

The next rule to consider for better leash walking with your pupper is practicing a solid sit once outside.

Practice a sit stay when you are out on a walk.
Sitting while out on a walk is a great way to encourage calm and control.

2) Ask for a sit

Once they have exited the vehicle or your home you should ask your dog to sit down. If they don’t do this for you, you guessed it, you’re going to load them back in the car and begin the process all over again. DeBard says, “Keep working at it until your dog can unload into a sit really nicely.” 

For some owners and their dogs, the training might not go any further than this. If this is the case load up again and then head home before trying again another time. Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither was training a dog how to behave calmly on a walk. 

On the other hand, if you are making good progress and your dog is understanding that they have to unload nice and calmly you can move on to the final rule.

Another way to keep your doggo safe.
