Dog Training and Pulling on the Lead

Start the walk as you want it to continue.
Your dog should not be allowed to wear their lead until they are calm (relatively). Do not let them get over excited again, even if you have to wait.
Training a Dog to Stop Pulling -
It’s a pretty big frustration INITIALLY but…
You must immediately come to a stop when your dog is pulling*. You would be telling them pulling is ok if you let them continue, even if you only do this sometimes.
Praise them and every so often offer a tasty treat when they come back by you and ideally acknowledge you.
DO NOT PULL BACK OR TUG ON THE LEAD, we don’t want to be the ones doing the action, we want the dog to be choosing to.

*This is the greatest method I have found to stop a dog from pulling because the dog is figuring out the very real CONSEQUENCE ALL FOR THEMSELVES. They do not get anywhere when they lunge forward and you gain the control at the other end of the leash ;-)

**As part of this training, do not as it appears in many dog parks, ‘be taken for a walk by your dog’ while off the lead. As in, simply follow all around where your beloved dog is going. You should be deciding where you are going and what you are up to etc.
