encouragement while walking on leash..
Rajko has been very good about walking on a leash, pretty much since day 1. However sometimes when we first begin our walk, all of the sudden he'll stop dead in his tracks and sit down and/or look at me. I know he is not tired yet because he is still full of energy when we get going again.
Anyway, in order to get him walking with me again, if I give him a gentle tug, not exactly dragging him but maybe pulling against his will for a couple of seconds, to a point where his paws slide forward and inch or two, he'll break right into stride and walk with me happily and not stop again for a long time. Still, I wonder if this is going to imprint something negative on his mind? I am trying to keep everything I do positive, so I want to make sure this action is not harmful or too negative.
btw Rajko is 11 weeks old.
