My Stella did this when she knew we would be going to the park. she would pull and yelp and honestly sounded like she was being tortured. So embarrassing. So we made regular trips to the park, no playing. We would just walk there and leave. The behavior calmed down the more trips we made. Also once we hit the walk way, I would stand still every time she pulled, it took about 10 minutes to get to the other end, but she finally got the idea.Originally Posted By: caligirl07Hi Guys,
I am going to bother you with some help again. Thank you all in advance.
We are taking Buddy (10 months) to this elementary school every evening to chase the ball with group of other people and dogs. We know each other for a while now. The problem is, that when I want to go there, Buddy knows, we are going there and he is very excited and pulls me on the leash like crazy, he tries to go very fast. I use the prong collar and it works on him always...I mean except when we go here. I don't know what to do anymore, I try to stop and calm him down, but then again he pulls me to get there. Otherwise, when I walk with him somewhere else, he can walk very nicely. What should I do? What can I try to teach him walk slowly to get there?
Sounds like a bit of leash aggresion, I give a leash correction and a leave it command to Cyrus when he does this on leash with other dogs.Originally Posted By: caligirl07Second question...when we are about to go home from the playground, and I put the leash on him and other dogs are around, and I am close to some of them, like standing next to that dog, he snaps at them. Is this normal? It is not every time, but I noticed, when I put the leash back, and we are going home. It doesn't happen when we meet other dogs, which are also on the leash. Could it be, because he is on the leash and they are not? Does he feel threatened? How can I correct him?
