An Alternative Lead or Dog Walking Approach
Are you having trouble getting your dog to walk appropriately on a leash? If so, ask your vet about using a harness or a gentle lead type of harness or walking approach. The gentle leader is a training tool that has been designed to help teach your dog leash manners. The lead works by gently moving your dogs head and body back towards you each time your dog tries to pull on the leash. This simply action helps keep your dog focused on the current command and gets him ready to follow the next commands given. The gentle leader device is a head collar that goes over your dog’s nose. The nose loop is what is used to direct or redirect your dog’s head position. Tools like this help reduce leash pulling and assist in training dogs to heal, walk on, etc. Talk to your animal hospital Norfolk, VA to find out if this is an option for your pup.
