A video: leash-tightening

December 8, 2009 at 9:01 am 3 comments

Here is a video by kikopup (she’s awesome) on how to train your dog to LOOK AT YOU when you tighten the leash. This technique is useful for dog owners who get tense or have anxiety and tighten the leash when they see a dog approaching.

This lesson is also in the Click To Calm book that I am reading (see prev. blog post). It’s great to see it in action!

Thank you for sharing.
