    great video zak! long time watcher, 1st time commenter. i’ve been doing the
    same thing with my dog who i rescued last december. due to the harsh winter
    i wasn’t able to get out and start training her. she would pull
    unrelentingly every time i put her on leash. using similar methods, as in
    i stop each time she begins to pull and await her eye contact and then we
    proceed when the leash is slack. keep making your great videos. – stony

    work…. 😉 Hope she’ll find a forever home soon!

    Zak, how do I stop my dogs from constantly wanting to stop and sniff while
    on the walk!

    Now THAT’S what I’m talking about!! More “real” videos like this please. I
    feel we can learn the most from the not so pretty training sessions. ;)

    My dog needs some work, she’s more of an escape artist than a puller. Got a
    harness that won’t let her go now, but I’m going to an obedience class to
    fix her anxiety problem anyway.

    My dog walks well but pulls when he encounters people or other dogs. He
    also picks things up as he walks, so I would appreciate a video for that.

    Sad to say my sweetheart of a German shepherd is a nightmare on walks.
    Squirrels, cats, dogs, forget it. He also likes to bite my shoes every now
    and again when I run with him, he’s a herding breed haha. I think he has
    great potential, but he is very dog aggressive and I don’t know if I can
    trust him

    Zak, Let me get this straight, we kill 4 million dogs a year and you have
    the balls to lie to people that it takes months to get a shelter dog to
    walk on a leash without pulling simply because you don’t know how to use a
    proper tool for a particular situation?

    If a shelter dog still pulls on the leash, jumps, or lunges, after a couple
    of WEEKS they don’t get adopted and they get euthanized. You’ve got some
    ego, man. Your ignorance about leadership training techniques is fueling
    the misinformation and lies that you’re pandering with all the scare
    tactics and charged words … and the sad fact is … people will believe
    your bollocks because you sold the sizzle of it feeling good to them while
    the real steak reality is that more dogs will die because of it. You
    crossed a new line. I can’t believe that I was once a fan of yours and
    enjoyed your marker techniques.

    You really don’t give a crap about helping dogs if it requires you to break
    out of your comfort zone or doesn’t fall in line with your “feel good”
    facade. You’re not rehabilitating dogs. You’re just a trick/agility
    trainer. You would never even touch some of the dogs that are rehabilitated
    by the trainers you publicly bash. Yet, even though you bash em, somehow
    you have no problem sharing sponsors with them? That’s beyond hypocritical
    and unethical. But, hey, as long as you get paid, right?

    Newsflash. It’s not about you! It never will be.

    Death before discomfort … you’re just downright cruel.

    Lila, a golden retriever 4 months old puppy at the beginning of the ride
    pulls a bit, minutes later, calm and walks very well; but later starts to
    pull a little, especially when we are close to home.
    The walk took 2 times a day, + / -2 km (1.24 miles) each ride.

    My Springer pulled terribly as it’s their nature to be out in front
    flushing game. I first trained her off the leash to come and sit next to me
    whenever I said “heel”. Now whenever I feel the pull on the leash I just
    say “heel” but this time continue walking and she just comes back to my
    side and walks alongside me.

    My dogs are terrible. I can’t seem to stop them from pulling.

    We tried several different harnesses on our husky to stop the pulling but
    they didn’t work. It was hard to get her energy out because she wouldn’t
    fetch and didn’t like toys. So we bought an X-back sled dog harness and
    she pulls me around on my longboard, snowboard, and bike. Amazingly, after
    teaching her things like when to wait and when to go, she walks on leash
    really well now and she can even walk off leash and will stay beside me,
    ignoring the other dogs and people walking around. Squirrels and rabbits
    are another story though…

    She pulls terribly but no I have not given up. She tries to chase loud
    vehicles and any small critter that runs away from her.

    I would love to see some videos of how to deal with dog aggression and
    people aggression humanely. I have seen many videos from other trainers,
    but I would LOVE to see one from you. :)

    I really like your method. Brandy (the beagle mix on the right) has been
    through beginner’s training, but continues to pull on the leash. The
    trainer had us just standing until the dog loosens on the leash, however,
    that didn’t work really well at all. Brandy would just strain on the leash
    until I performed an action, like pulling her back to me. I like this way
    much better because it gives me an action to perform, which is what she
    needs. Foster, my little fluffy guy, seems to be pretty good on the leash
    so far.

    My dogs walk great on the leash but we’re thinking about a puppy so we
    appreciate the refresher course. I remember picking up the pace the first
    few minutes of a walk. I understand thought that you want your puppy to
    give you eye contact and to walk at your pace and not theirs. My dogs are
    natural walkers I guess because I’ve never had much of a problem. Clicked a
    leash on them and they walked at my pace. I didnt have a dog (long passed)
    who pulled and I used the reverse direction. He got it after a little
    training. You need lots of patience with a puppy biting you and your shoe

    I love that you used a rescue Pit for your video. Most of my client’s dogs
    are Pits. I would say the biggest challenge for most people is learning how
    to walk with their dog on a loose leash. It is also the most frustrating
    skill to teach the humans because they are conditioned to hold the leash
    tight, causing the dogs to pull.
    Can you, at some point, address the dangers and pitfalls of retractable

    Your method is ineffective. You the expert had a terribly hard time . I
    believe you are not disciplining your dog and the dog does virtually
    anything she wants.(disciplne does not mean beat the dog)

    My 10 year old BC is great until he sees another dog. We can’t walk passed
    the other dogs we see yet but he happily will let them go by if we step off
    the sidewalk and give him a few high value treats.

    My puppy is 4.5 months and a dream on a leash. Every time she sees another
    dog she knows treats are coming so she loves passing other dogs.

    We’ve had our dog for 10 months now. He is very smart and we know he
    understands commands to walk by our side and to slow down, but unless he is
    tired after a brisk walk, he will be pulling us very hard once out of the
    house. I hold the leash loose enough to allow him free movement, but I
    also hold it near my hip and secure it fast once he pulls, then I stop. He
    knows I stop because he is pulling, so right away he moves to my side, but
    in only a few steps he will be pulling again! What to do in this case?
    We’ve concluded he is simply stubborn, since he knows what he is doing.

    sometimes our Mudi 2 month year old puppy is the best ever at walking on
    the leash. Other times he’s just terrible what should I do?

    I love that this video show how to walk a tough dog rather than a dog that
    clearly has already been trained! You showed great versatility in your
    approach – illustrates very well how sometimes what you think the dog wants
    isn’t what they find rewarding and how important it is to trade in their
