Pulling on the leash
I'm getting ready to adopt a GSD from a rescue. I visited her today and took her for a walk. She was found as a stray and has no leash manners. She pretty much tried to drag me while walking her (it doesn't help that I'm a petite 5' tall woman). She started choking because she couldn't breath when I first started walking her.
What can I do to teach her to not pull while we're walking?
She is about one and is really smart. So, I think she'll catch on quick. Plus, she was pretty excited when we got there to look at her. She'll probably be a little calmer once she is at our house. When we got her away from the people and other dogs that were there, she did calm down a little.
