Loose Leash Walking Tips: For Humans!

Leash Selection, Leash Handling, and Reinforcement Mechanics



My latest video is on the human end of the loose leash walking game. In my last video I talked about my strategy to train and maintain loose leash walking. To build on that video, this week I talk about the leash I use and why, how to hold it, and how I reinforce to create a reinforcement zone by my hip which essentially glues the dog to your side.


This strategy helps prevent forging or crossing over your body and tripping you. There's a lot of different ways to use cookies to reinforce heel position, but I find the method outlined here to be the way that works most consistently with the dogs that I've trained. So if you're looking to learn more about the human end of the leash and how you can be an even better partner for your dog, this is the video for you!
