The Gentle Lead for Dogs
Are you having a hard time walking your dog? Does he always move around or try to pull in his collar or harness? If so, talk with your vet about training classes. Your vet may be able to recommend a certain training or obedience school for your dog. In addition, your vet may also recommend using a gentle lead type of system to teach your dog how to properly walk on a leash. The gentle leads usually work by gently moving your dog’s head and body back towards you each time he tries to pull on the leash. The action can help your dog learn to refocus and listen to commands. The name brand for this system is Gentle Leader, but there are also other brands with the same concept available. Most of these can be found at your local pet store. Talk to your animal hospital Bend, OR for more suggestions.
