Teaching Loose Leash Walking

This came in a message from my dog training club's board. It looks good and they use a GSD for a training subject.

Lynn Martin, KPA CTP, and Helix Fairweather have created a tutorial for SHAPING POLITE
WALKING. This is a 100% positive reinforcement method for building your
dog's ability to walk on a slack leash. This tutorial is in three parts and
is currently on Vimeo, Video Sharing For You at the following addresses:

Part 1: http://www.vimeo.com/13110409

Part 2: http://www.vimeo.com/13562479

Part 3: http://www.vimeo.com/13321611

These are publicly accessible. Feel free to pass the links on to anyone you
like. I will be putting the same video clips on YouTube also. You can find
them via the tags or the title. My YouTube username is helix137; you can
search on that also.

Helix Fairweather, KPA CTP

I "know" Helix - I remember her from Leslie McDevitt's Control Unleashed yahoo email list before it was discontinued. I believe she was one of the moderators.

My dog training club is interested in incorporating this method into our Obedience 1 classes.
