I’ve trained several dogs to walk on a leash. Usually it’s not a big deal. Go out to the drive way. They usually resist the leash. They try to take off and get a surprise when the leash stops them. Then we you start walking they pull/drag a few feet behind. After a yard or two they start walking. Repeat the next day. Usually by day 2 they got it figured out. I never worried about “heeling” I’m satisfied if they walk beside me or a step or two behind.
My Boston Terrier must have some bulldog in her. Geez she’s stubborn, or retarded. Maybe both. Been working with her for awhile now and she STILL resists the leash. Makes me pull her along. She’s getting better. Sometimes she’ll walk a few minutes. But then unexpectedly STOP. Darn near caused me to fall. That jerk on my arm when she stopped was so unexpected.
I’d like to get her running with me. But can’t trust her yet. She stops unexpectedly and it might hurt both of us. I really hate it when she decides to switch sides. I’m holding the leash in my right hand and she darts over to the left side. :rolleyes:
Any ideas? I’m hanging in there. I can be just as stubborn as her.
This is a first for me. A dog that can’t figure out walking on a leash.
