How to use your leash. When you are working with your dog it is very important that you are not keeping constant pressure on your dog. All that does is turn him into a husky where he is always pulling forward so the trick to using the leash correctly is to be able to give a correction and then go right back to slack leash. What I don’t want to do is correct the dog for doing something nice. She was laying down quietly. That is not a reason to correct her by pulsing on the leash. Keep in mind that each time you put pressure on the leash that is correction so you want to make sure that you are counting that. If you are giving too many you need to rethink how you may be working that leash with your dog. So I’m going to move as I give a pulse on this leash to get her to come with me. It goes right back to loose leash.One of the important parts of this would be the positioning of your collar. The collar should be up around the dog’s ears very high on the neck coming off to the side that you are standing on. That will take the dog off balance when you give a correction rather than the pulling that doesn’t work. .
