very good theory!!!! congratulations
Hey +Nigel Reed, Great video! It’s nice to see someone realistic about
this. It does take time and effort, but the rewards are great!
I would like to home train my pet dog.
I see you’re in Gatley, South Manchester at 7minutes in. Do you train up
Hi Nigel… Great video, thank you for the advice. I have one question. We
live in a busy city and need to take our dog outside on a walk every time
she needs to go to the bathroom. How can we incorporate this technique
while still ensuring she is able to find the right place to relieve
herself? As a side note, she is about 4-5 months old and we just picked
help from the shelter a few days ago. She is not yet house broken. Thank
you very much for your advice and good luck with everything!
Excellent video. We have a 10 month old German Pinscher that we’ve been
working on training with him for about 5 months. We take him for a walk and
a run everyday to get his energy out. However, there are a couple of things
for us to still work on. One of the things that seems the most difficult is
with people and dogs during our walks/runs. He begins barking and lunging
at them, but not aggressively. In other words, if I were to let him go to
the people or dogs he would greet be fine and not attack or bite. We take
him to stores and he doesn’t have the same issue…just during walks/runs.
Would this be corrected by using your methods for leash walking? Or is
there something else we may be missing? Thank you for your time.
Oh, and also, which dog should I take first during training? We walk them
together in the evenings but I’m alone in the day and can’t manage them
both until I’m in control of the new dog. I want to try to keep my original
dog in ‘top dog’ position so feed her first etc., but she doesn’t always
like to go out for a walk (she hates the rain and cold) so should I always
take her twice as well? I don’t want her to feel left out. Many thanks.
Very interesting! But as a regular dog walker at animal sanctuary’s I
encountered several problems because of all distraction, or cagefighting to
dogs “next door”. Don’t know if I can ask you some questions about this.
Very interesting video – I have 2 dogs, one is 2, Maltese/JR cross bitch
and I have just (about 2 months ago) got a Romanian rescue, about 8 months
old, bitch, looks a bit like a lowland shepherd. I’m trying to train her
to walk to heel and we are doing fine until we come across another person,
as she is terrified and either tries to escape or barks furiously – I have
totally lost control. What should I do?
Great Techniques! Always had the worst walks with my 4 year old collie lab,
no matter how hard I tried to correct her. Anyways, last week I decided to
give the training another shot and she’s finally mastered it! I’ve also
noticed that the stop-start-change direction helps her with her fear
aggression when we are on our walks.
God job Great training
Nice. Thanks for sharing.
A truly great trainer. Much respect from Los Angeles from me and my boy
Love! Love! Love! This video! I have looked for so long for a trainer as
positive as you! I have 3 dogs who are all very different & all have way
too much energy & excitement when it comes to walks! But i have a very good
feeling about your methods & I am going to give it a shot! Thank you!
Thank you! Thank you!
Awesome. See how the dogs stopped looking at their surroundings for
directions and started looking at him for direction?
Looking forward to giving this a shot…
People will think I’m crazy if I keep changing directions with my dog in
the street 😀 but I’ll give it a try anyway, thanks :)
Good video, thanks! Never realized I should start with putting on the
Very good! I have a border collie who is very keen to please but also pulls
a lot, especially to sniff things. I like that your methods are not overly
focused on treats, I have been trying a similiar method with a basenji that
I walk who is very difficult to motivate but he has been very successful,
so now I need to sort my own dog out (He is a rescue and I haven’t had him
very long!). I walk them together sometimes and it all goes out the window
and gets somewhat chaotic especially in sniffy areas! Two dogs together can
be quite confusing!
Easy to understand, great articulation and use of voice. This is a very
It seems so simple, changing directions keeps the dog behind you and puts
him/her in the position of keeping up. And then it becomes a habit.
Great video! Very easy to understand and a good one to refer my clients
too! Thanks for sharing!
amazing! i hope its going to help :)
Hi Nigel! This video is extremely helpful, and made us realize we need to
be more diligent about not letting bad habits go if we are too busy to do a
proper walk. Do you have any tips for dogs who continuously try to pick up
trash during a walk? We live in NYC where there tends to be a lot of junk
on the sidewalk, and our dog is constantly lunging for things. He is about
1 year old, and we just adopted from a shelter in Florida. Unfortunately,
he came with some bad habits :)
Nigel, Great video.. Very helpful.. I have a 4 Month old chocolate Lab
that I just picked up from rescue. He doesn’t pull, but does the exact
opposite and will either just sit or fight the walk and pull back. When I
try changing directions he will pull back. Do you have any recommendations
for me!?! Thanks!!
enjoyed this off to practice now with my 14 week old labrador pup
‘Tuppence’. thanks for the great video.
How long would you spend doing this with a dog and how many times a day?
you are very english
Hi Nigel, I was very interested to watch your video. I am just about to
get a Labrador puppy and am terrified that I won’t be able to train it and
I very much want a well trained dog! My question is at what age do I
start. I notice you are training quite large dogs, I’m getting my puppy at
6 weeks, so how long should I wait before the serious training as you were
doing? Many thanks.
Really good video its goid to see someone do a video with a dog that hasnt
already been trained, but would it be possible to do it without treats as
our border collie has a very sensitive stomach and can’t have anything but
his medicated dog food which doesn’t work as a treat as he isn’t very keen
