Well at least I think he did. I have been more consistently walking him on leash around the neighborhood. Since he is still tired from daycare yesterday, I spent less time playing fetch than normal and we went for a good walk. We went along a very busy street, neighborhood, saw (and heard) other dogs. He is pulling significantly less on leash than before.
Plkus when he started to dviert his attention to something else, I gave a yank on the leash and he immediately focused ahead. We still have work to do but he has been doing this for about 2 weeks now. Never thought I would see this!
Good boy, Tal!! ;D
You do know that when you yank on the leash you're supposed to keep silent - so that he thinks the leash did it and not you? I learned that in class. It really works!

Well actually I didn't know that but have yanked it without saying anything. Makes sense...when I give a correction I want him to always think of me as the good guy and not associate the negative with me. Good point.Originally Posted by jzgrlduff
We are working on this also, good point jzgrlduff - something so simple I never even thought of
And good job Tal ;D
Way to go, Tal! Walks are so pleasant when everyone is going at the same speed (and in the same direction - lol)!.
What a good boy, Tal!
good boy Tal!
