Dog Training, Dog Behaviour, Be aware of cuing…

Watch out for cuing a negative response in your dog…
Try not to tighten and tense up on the grip held with your dogs lead/leash when you spot another dog (or this can apply to spotting other animals or people) in the distance and usually a road crossing is not needing when discovering them at a distance either ;-) These actions only perpetuate the signals to your dog that yes, indeed, there must be something off with that ‘being’ if we are to ‘react’ this way.
Another, slightly different way to look at cuing is -
When you put your dog back on their lead/leash after a recall/’Come,’ try if you can, to leave the lead long enough for slack. If you have the lead too short and tight each time after you get your dog back in, a negative association can form with coming back to you and being put on the lead - because your dog has lost all that freedom.
