How do I stop my dog pulling on its lead?
The most reliable way to go about this would be to train the dog, using positive reward methods like treats, rewarding the dog for walking on a loose lead beside you. If the dog pulls and the lead tightens then stand still until the lead is loose again, then reward the dog and carry on repeating those steps. This can be a slow process so while you are working through the lead walk training we do have products in store to help you gain more control during walks. The company of animals halti headcollar gives additional control, especially with larger dogs, plus we stock a wide range of harnesses to use instead of collars if the dog tends to choke itself whilst pulling.
