My Dog Pulls on Leash!

Many dog guardians struggle with their dogs pulling them on leash walks. This frustrating training challenge can be quite easily overcome by training your dog to do what you want him to do by rewarding him for staying next to you while on leash, a few steps at a time.  While reward-based training works wonders for this problem, some people need extra help.  There are a great number of humane and gentle training tools that can help during the process. Choke, prong, pinch, or electronic collars (see SimpleLEASH? Simply Wrong!!) are never necessary!
