How to walk Fido and talk at the same time

How to walk Fido and talk at the same time

I don’t mean talking like “good boy” or “go potty” but body language
which lets your dog know that you are in charge.

Most of the behavioral problems that owners face
are the result of owners letting their dogs take control.

This does not mean being a tyrant or using a formal “heel” process; it’s simple
it means being the leader of the pack.

Walking is an activity that almost all of us do with our dogs, and this can
strengthening our position as alpha dogs.

What are the owners doing wrong?

Bad posture. People bend over, bend down to look down at their dogs, fight them
the leash and generally seem stressed or impatient.

What should owners do?

Attach a leash to a body harness, not a walking collar.

Louise Louise doesn’t like walking collars because there is too much danger
for injuring the neck of the Toy breed by pulling on the collar while walking.

She also doesn’t like the retractable straps as they are too long
keep control and keep dog safe on city streets. some
cities ban them for the same reasons.

Her recommendation is a 4- to 6-foot leather leash for urban walks.

The strap handle or loop should slide over your left wrist.
This provides more control and reduces the probability
the strap may slip from your hand.

Place the strap itself over the fingers of your right hand
so you can shorten or lengthen it as needed.

Place your hands in front of you, just below your waist.

Most of the strap should be between your right side
hand and your dog. You only need about six inches of strap
between your right and left hand.

Keep your head up and maintain a positive posture.

Unlike many trainers who think the dog should not be
allowed to sniff, roll and walk all that passes Louise
Lewis believes that dogs should be allowed to behave like dogs.

As long as he obeys your commands when you give them (come, sit,
put it down) she says to cut it some slack!

The only exception is for male dogs that are constantly lifting
their feet on everything in their path. Don’t do it all the time
stop it.

You need to train your dog to relieve himself at first
on the walk. His leg lift has more to do with his attempts
to mark his territory than relieve that bladder.

If you don’t remember anything else from this, please note
in the words of the late great Barbara Woodhouse: head held high,
hands down.
