    LOL this doesn’t even work. just giving your dog a treat when they come back to you doesn’t stop them from pulling. the dog in this video wasnt even actually pulling

  2. You should not …
    You should not treat the dog and speak to it as he were an idiot. This technique is very poor and will work only on some dogs. The best way I think is to change directions often, or when the dog lunges ahead, we walk 1 or 2 small steps towards the dog(to slacken the leash), then start walking in the opposite direction. Most dogs will learn easily this way.

    my Dalmatian is deaf……and is constantly going after any and all paper she finds on the street…she loves paper cups…I have NO idea why…And she’s as dumb as a rock…

    Hello this does work for some dogs as i own a Jack Russell too and she walks great on the leash, and some times she walks behind me and she is 4 yrs old so it can be done you just have to keep up on it that’s all. Oh yeah my jack did it without food.

    okay first of, if it doesnt work, u need to think how long uve been doing this and how long uve let ur dog to pull. if ur dog has been able to pull for years, it wont stop in a day or even in a month. and u should let ur dog realize by itself why u stopped cuz that will make it remember it better. and it doesnt have to make an eye contact, its enough that it comes near you and is being calm. then u continue walking. but this worked with my dog. always when its almost pulling, it slows down.

    Here we see the cult of positive-reinforcement-only. Forget this and use the sneak-away (change of direction) technique. Tried, true, proven effective.

  7. Does work but as …
    Does work but as always you need to do it consitently and you may not get very far in the beginning so using this, changing direction, food and other techniques gaining their attention together will give better results.

  8. WHAT??? My Jack …
    WHAT??? My Jack Russell would take the food and still run ahead. not buying it.

    This method doesn’t seem to be working for me and my Aussie pup. I’m gonna try the change direction method.
