please help i cant controll her when i take her for a walk shes a year old and she keeps pulling me in stead of me walking her!!!!!!!! please help her other owners just dumped her and so i took her to the vet she was okay and then i took her home so please help me!!!
obediance is a must at this point. some basic lessons will teach you heeling, sit, down, etc. That would help the most. I would also change to walking her on a harness not a collar. If she is pulling as much as you say, a collar can damage her trechea(sp?). good luck
great thanks for the tip im gonna sign up for classes and hopefully she will stop pulling also I have bought a harness already but she really pulls yesterday she ran off and was almost hit by a car but she is still alive... thank god
Get the type of harness that attaches in front of the dog's chest. That way, if she pulls, she'll end up spinning herself around.
Something else to try in the meantime: When the pup pulls -- STOP. She needs to understand that pulling is counter-productive. You might also want to walk backwards when she pulls -- that will emphasize that she won't be able to get where she wants to go when she pulls.
Another thing to try is to turn around and walk the other way if she runs ahead and starts pulling. You are trying to teach her that running ahead will just put her behind.
You can also walk with treats -- which you can mete out to her if she is polite and walks beside you.
No, you won't be covering much ground during your "walks" if you do this. Be patient and it will get better.
thanks i never thourght of those things only i do have that kind of harness and she loves chewing on it after the walks over we never get far since she keeps pulling so i have to stop her!
She really does get annoying that way... thanks for the tips though I'll try them when i take her out on our evening walk tonight. She loves them since its always nice weather but she keeps pulling! I really do hope those tips help, and i think the treats part should have a good efect on her since she loves schmackos popcorn that i buy... any ways thanks for the tips
I tried walking her using those tips but she didnt do athing with the treats she tripped me so i dropped the treats and she ate them... but when i turned around she just walked around my legs and i was tied up abit round the legs!
What do i do now???
Ill keep trying to train her that way but can anyone give me more tips?
