#2 – Not pulling on the lead
This is a SUPER HARD one.
Stuff is just so exciting out there, it can be hard to remembers not to pulls the humans along to gets there as fast as ever possible.
Humans hates to be pulled alongs for some funny reason!
When I first came to live with my human (I was only a baby of six months), I thought you hads to RUN everywhere as fast as possibles. I couldn’t understands why my humans just stopped and refused to move every time I started to pulls. We spent AGES just standing around our estate, not going anywheres! We sure looked like a bunch of dummies and the humans was embarrassed to be seen with me…
Now, I mostly walks really well, but sometimes, just betweens you and me, I still kind of forgets and starts running when we first go outside. I’m only doggie after all!
If your doggies can’t gets the hangs of not pulling, you can gets special harnesses to helps them remember. I hads to wear one that closed up front after my knee operations, as I wasn’t allowed to strain my legs, but really wanteds to go places after having to be in a crate for SIX whole weeks!
