Re: Does anyone else's dog do this?
Stark did this once a few times once I got a new halti for him. He was fustrated that he couldn't move forward where he wanted to go (love the halti!) and so threw a tantrum. BIG TIME. I stayed in place, ignored the behaviour (jumping, crying, whining, etc..) and when he settled and was calm we continued on our way.
I was so happy that no one was around because it sounded like I was hurting him. Which of course, I was not. He was just [pee peed] that I would not move or go where he wanted.
He learned very quickly that the only way to move forward is to walk nicely next to me, no pulling.
I agree though, ignoring the behaviour works.
