How to stop your dog pulling on the lead

One of the biggest gripes dog owners experience is their dog pulling on the lead.

Dogs have a LOT of energy, so it’s always a good idea to run them around a bit before attempting to train them to walk on the lead. This will help get that crazy out of them before attempting to start training.

  1. Start your training in a familiar environment
  2. The less distractions the better
  3. Start in the backyard and venture out into the world later
  4. Check what kind of collar / lead combo you are using. Head to your local PETstock for advice on fitting the right collar and lead for your dog.
  5. One the correct collar is fitted and you have chosen the perfect lead length for your pooch, you're ready to get started!

We also offer Puppy School programs at a numer of our stores. The program is based on using a reward-based training method which teaches pet parents:

  • How to communicate with your puppy or dog
  • How to develop solid foundation obedience in all environments
  • The importance of socialisation, mental and physicals stimulation
  • Ways to help curb any behavioural problems
  • How to find the correct equipment for your dog
  • The appropriate rewards for results

 

Further to the above, below we have even more tips for how to stop your dog pulling on the lead!

  • Make sure you’ve got a pocket full of treats. Small rewards that are squishy, fragrant and delicious are a real training incentive.

  • The beginning will be hard. Keep your expectations low. Entice them to stay close by your side. Initially what we’re after is a simple walk together. Eventually you two will walk side by side at the same pace, loose lead, your dog looking up occasionally and making eye contact.

  • Say ‘let’s go’ and pat your leg. It’s important to reward a few steps at the beginning. If he starts to pull, stop immediately, and turn and walk 180 degrees the other way. When he follows a few steps then turn again and resume normal direction. Reinforce the good behaviour. When your dog is by your side with a slack lead, say ‘Yes’ or ‘Heel’ and reward him with a treat. It’s important to be clear with the tone of your voice and actions. Make your training sessions, frequent, short and fun. 5-10 minutes a day should do it.

PETstock provides a safe environment that will see you and your dog or puppy thrive together under the skilled guidance of our friendly, professional training team.

There are a number of treats, collars & leads designed to help your training, find the right fit for you and your dog online or instore!
