How To Stop Dog Pulling On A Leash

If you want your dog to stop pulling on a leash because it is causing you grief, such as you’re hurting your arm/hand, he’s jumping up on people, rushing toward other dogs, etc. you can train him to stop hauling you forward using a few simple techniques.

Step 1 – Don’t continue walking if the lead is tight.  When you are walking your pooch immediately stop when he is about to apply any tension to the lead.  Halt completely in your tracks and stand your ground.  Your sudden lack of movement will catch his attention and he’ll stop pulling on a leash.  When he turns his focus to you, immediately praise him, you can even reward him with a small treat if you’d like.  Once you praise him, have him move back into a heel position
