Tried the Weenie Walker Method!
 
After reading this old thread that was revived yesterday:

http://www.germanshepherds.com/forum...se-puller.html

I tried it, as Viktor can be a "puller" at times.... and I must say, it worked great. It was only the one time, but I was impressed.

I tie the leash all the time when dogs are high in drive, like going in/out of the ring for flyball, to/from the platform for dock diving, on/off the field for lure coursing. Works great, no need for special collars or equipment (and in most of these venues, stuff that's not a normal collar, leash, or harness is not allowed).

I wish the video worked for me! I would love to watch it!

The video link doesn't work any more. I would like to see how the leash loops around.. Could you please post it again? :)

Since the video didn't work, I googled the subject and came up with this:

If it's not there, I don't have it, sorry! Found this Googling (the image source doesn't embed correctly here): Improvement on Leash - thanks to Kari - Boxer Forum : Boxer Breed Dog Forums

The first time I did this with my dog she was SO MAD lol It's definitely really uncomfortable for them to pull against it, but I don't like that you have no control over their head, so not something I'd use in close quarters with other dogs.

The prong collar is the safest most effective way to train a dog on the lead, bar none. With the Lew Burke method you can have a dog heeling off the lead in no time.

Prong collars are banned from many sporting events.

What does that have to do with the price of tea in China?
