How to Stop your Dog from Pulling on the Leash

Almost every dog pulls on their leash when they get excited. This is not good for your dog's neck if they use a collar.

Before you take your dog out for a walk, put the leash on them. They will most likely become very excited. Don't rush outside with them, you need to get them to relax first.

Here are some dog training tricks to try to stop your dog from pulling on the leash

* Before you take your dog outside for their walk, put their leash on
* If they are excited, walk them around the house until they calm down than praise them
* Take your dog outside and if he begins to pull on the leash- walk them around the yard until they calm down. Once they are relaxed, praise them for calming down
* Begin to go on your walk. If your dog pulls on the leash, stop and wait until they calm down. Do this each time and always remember to praise (Tone of voice is of utmost importance)
