Pulling!!

My girl Lexi is 18 months old and still won't walk like a dog with half a brain!
Lexi once chocked herself out from pulling so much while on her leash. Since that incident I bought her a harness but I find it just gives her more pulling power as it wraps around her chest instead of her throat.
Can anyone help me calm this girl down while on a leash?? She wants to play with everything that moves! Even the leaves blowing around makes her go bananas!

Does the harness clip at her back or on her chest? Clip on the chest.

Also use a regular leash, loop the clip through the handle and put it around her waist (this is in addition to the collar\harness) and when she pulls, snug it up. She should snap into line pretty quick. A few walks like this should help a lot.

You can try redirection too. When she pulls, change the direction you are walking (this did not work with my boy, but does some dogs)

Another thing is when she pulls, stop, make her sit. when she calms continue walking, rinse, repeat. This also did not work for my boy, but I have had luck with other dogs and this method.

The secondary leash looped around the waist is the only thing that worked for my boy.

So you're saying to put the clip at her chest? And hook the leash there?

Yes, when they pull it forces the to walk sideways. Most dogs find this unnatural and fall into line quickly. Except my dog who turned into a bucking bronco trying to slip his harness.

Dicky, I too have used the waist leash with my girl Athena and it definitely is effective in stopping the pulling.
It sounds like Camo is like the stallion that just can't be broken, LOL, just a strong spirited boy. I think you will have to wait for him slow down with age which I know you agree is better then breaking his spirit. Gotta love 'em.

Happy to hear that it worked and I know from experience that your arm appreciates it too.

My unaltered, baby is 5, 55lb or so, not tall very muscular. We lived on 20 acres of land where he could chase all the squirrels he wanted. Well had to move onto city, in a condo. �� Walking him on a leash- sees another dog and it feels as if he's gonna take his head off when sees another dog- pulls with such force he is nearly flat on the ground in a crawl best way to describe. I will tell him to sit,stop, he does, for 2 seconds, I'll change direction, doesn't work. Help help. He's very sweet but don't know what his goal is in trying to get to other dogs so so hard he's hurting himself. Don't want something to happen to him or another. Or neighbors complain he's vicious. Help help. Idk how to stop this

Get a good flat buckle collar to start. Stillwater Kennel Supplies makes a good one. Then get a prong for corrections. Use both collars with leashes. The prong above the flat buckle. The prong is only for quick pop and release leash corrections while the flat buckle is to save the poor dogs trachea while pulling. This will help with the actual walking part.

What does he want with those dogs you ask? He probably wants to kill them. Work on a focus or watch me command. In time you'll be able to get him to look away and redirect his attention for short periods of time.

You can also look into a trainer or behaviorist to help you. One that specializes in bull breeds.

To start all of those things, I suggest walking him when the streets are less crowded with dogs. Until you are confident you can control him.

We rescued Axel at just a year old about three months ago now. At first walking with him was a nightmare. He was ok, but whenever he would see a dog, cat or any animal he would start pulling and would not listen at all. One training course down and several walks later we have finally mastered the loose leash walk with clicker training.
He no longer pulls when he sees another dog he just stops and lays down until SJ or I tell him to leave it and come or he waits until the dog comes up to him then they do their thing. He stays next to us the entire walk unless we walk past his favorite pee spot that he has to tag. Heís complexity transferomed. He wasnít a bad dog before, he just wasnít the best listener. He wears a harness too with a leash that would you would see a toy yorkie being walked with. Lol

I suggest keeping him right next to you on walks for the first three weeks. No slack at all, none. Then every week give em a foot, second week two feet etc. Its all about building up tollerence in a way. If he starts to abuse the loose leash privilege start over again. Donít be imbaressed to be that person that clicks every 5 steps and treats. I was a t first and finally decided to stop giving a damn. I rather have an obedient pup than a trouble maker in my hands. Donít ever pull when he starts pulling. Your not playing tug. Like stated before stop and wait till he comes back to you then click and treat or just walk in the other direction.

Side note, always be clicker training. Donít give up. You will see change I promise. We even use the clicker at home.

Good luck!
