In front of your dog, walk.
Your dog should walk with you or behind you when you go for a stroll. To him, the person in front of him is the pack’s leader. On the other hand, if he walks ahead of you and leads you, he will be the pack’s leader. This could be bad for both you and your dog. After a walk, you should be the first one out the door and the first one back in.
Use a leash that isn’t too long.
This is critical for improved control. We do not recommend that you start your dog on a retractable leash, for example, depending on the breed. To better communication, correct your dog, attach the leash to the very top of the neck.
During the stroll, give your dog a treat.
When you’ve determined that your dog has been behaving and staying on course, praise him by allowing him to wander around freely and sniff about. After that, you determine when the enjoyable period is done. This time should always be shorter than the time spent walking. At your command, your dog should begin moving.
Being a responsible dog walker is essential.
Remember to have a bag with you every time you go dog walking so you can pick up after your dog. Dogs will almost always take advantage of the opportunity to relieve themselves, which is why you should bring a bag to clean up after him.
Take care of your dog’s walking requirements.
Dogs require exercise and should be entertained in addition to being walked. A bored dog will often become destructive and bark excessively. Dogs’ activity requirements differ based on their breed. Find out what kind of exercise your dog’s breed requires and do your best to match their needs.
