Leash Walking Tips Remember loose-leash-walking takes practice and patience! Your dog may look like a yo-yo for a while while they’re learning that pulling won’t get them where they’re going. Also note, your dog will NOT learn how to loose-leash-walk on a retractable leash. If your dog pulls forward on a retractable leash and the leash extends, your dog just learned “pulling gets me there faster!” Source: julianajean & Bark Post
We yielded to horses pulling buggeys. Their clip-clopping was such a familiar sound that our dogs didn't even bark anymore. My sister in Turbotville still has a neighbor boy who rides a bareback horse to the nearby Amish school. He races her beagle the length of the yard, coming & going.
