    Defaultfirst walk with the pinch collar

    So tonight I decided food rewards wont work so i put on the pinch collar for a walk. WOW what a difference. The second i put it on her and she felt it i could tell, We kept the walk very short maybe 10 mins because with her being new to me and me to her i didnt want her to become distrustful and fearfull towards me. Made it short with lots of praiseing. She did buck twice but soon gave up when it got tighter. She would heel and sit on command when we stoped walking.

    I lost her attention when see saw a rabbit but i kept on walking telling her to heel the whole time and saying good girl, good shelby.

    Should I keep these walks short or push on with longer walks?

    IMO and from the research ive done says that you shouldnt walk your dog for extended periods of time more than 15mins when you first get your dog and increase the time slowly but progressively the older your dog becomes and based on the trust your dog has for you. All in all you seem to be doing the right thing but thats IMO
