Leash Corrections?

First off what is the dogs age? What are the problems with leash training? It for me honestly makes a difference in what I do with dog, regarding whats asked above. That being said, each dog is different with its reactions. Some dogs (like mine, since I do little correction with leash) will react with very little force. Others seem to need a quick snap, but I rarely use anything past there.

  • I'm writing this hoping for some insight, I'll give more information on my reasoning based on answers that I receive. In training, particularly compulsion training, how should your dog react once you snap the leash and collar/chain? Should there be ANY reaction? BIG, little, NONE. Thanks in advance and as I stated I just want to hear answers before I give the reason for the question. Hope all understand and are forthcoming with answers. I don't THINK I have a problem I just want to see.

[/quote1304105039] Always make sure that before your dog receives ANY [u]correction[/u].....the dog should fully understand what he is being corrected [u]for[/u]. Even if the dog doesn't have a leash and collar on,and is 15 ft. away from you eating some cat poop....you could yell,bean him in butt with your keys or a rock,etc...... The reaction should always be the same??........STOP doing whatever you are doing.........and do what I asked [u]IF[/u] dog fully understands what you are asking. just how i see it deuces, t

        • They should be happy to be on a leash it means they are going for a walk mine will put her head in the choker just waiting to go out. You might have problems if your stressed out taking a pulling dog that annoys you and you get upset I would start over with a long line 15 to 20 foot rope and walk in a field from one end to the other with no words spoken pretend you are a train you stop for nothing say nothing just walk your dog it will learn to pay attention to where your going after a week or two when your dog is no longer being surprised at the end of the leash and is always paying attention to you it is time to start on a regular 6 foot leash with the choker you were using and when the dog starts pulling you just turn around and go it the opposite direction without jerking the leash let them find the end themselves and they will rush to keep up you do that every time and soon you will have there attention and they will heal fine if your consistent and don't let emotions get in the way the dog will not lose confidence.

          • Mine just ignores me and keeps walking if I snap the leash. I have to show him the "Mean finger" with the "Low mean voice". Otherwise I don't think I exist at the other end of the leash.

            • Okay, I think it's NOTHING but here's an explanation. I get NO reaction but he turns his nose towards the leash when I snap, say announcing heel, also if he doesn't do something he KNOWS such as not sitting or backing away when I'm eating I'll snap the leash and he'll turn his nose towards it. Let me explain, Butch has this thing where he'll nose you as if actually pushing you he's been doing it since he was at least 4 months and I noticed he did it to other dogs constantly not biting but nosing and he does at times to me being defiant or even challenging and I QUICKLY back him up tell him don't nose me then make him sit and if necessary down and he's even getting difficult with THAT where I have to stand over him and show MORE authority, (BULLDOG through and through but I'm tougher, LOL). Sorry for the long post but I DID say I would give more details, Thanks. So, I don't think there's a reaction just wondering if there MAY be one coming, the heeling is also getting better with the leash snaps. LMAO, he's watching Dog Whisperer with a VERY whiny Australian Shepherd right now, as a matter of fact he was sleep, heard ALL that noise and lifted his head, got up, tilted his head, whined a little and has been staring at it for 5 minutes or so. I just HAD to share THAT, VERY FUNNY.
