How to Get Dog to Stop Pulling on Leash?


Active member
When I come home from work, my dog is so excited to go on a walk that she pulls on the leash for the first half of our walk. After that, she calms down and starts walking nicely.

How do I get her to stop pulling on the leash during the first half of our walk? Do you have any tips?
Kikopup usually has great videos on techniques. In short we has the handlers try to become number one in the environment. There are many techniques and the main thing is consistency and your dog will learn to not pull and keep the leash loose. It takes time but it will happen with good communication and consistency.
