Keeping A Tight Leash (Literally)
Just as dogs are amazing at reading our body language, they’re amazing at reading our tension levels even through the leash. By keeping a tight leash on a dog, you’re raising the level of stress, frustration, and excitement for your dog, and conversely, for you. I know what you might be thinking: “I don’t want to hold a tight leash, but I have to. My dog is the one pulling, not me!” But this is why it is so important to teach a dog how to walk on a slack leash.

Yet they don’t tell you what the CORRECT way to say stay is!
We also NEVER hook the leash on the neck collar and use a harness when we hook them, many dogs are taken to the vet each year with throat ailments over hooking to collars!
