Every time you walk down the street, you’ll see at least one person being dragged by their dog. When the dog pulls, they pull back, and sometimes a full-on tug-of-war happens. It’s not a fun experience for either the dog or the person.
Unpleasant walks are one of the main reasons that people get a dog trainer, and many of my clients have a problem with it when they first hire me. Most trainers will tell you that it’s a reflex for a dog to pull on the leash, but the behavior goes much deeper than an involuntary response.
