This is Ryan Gwilliam on behalf of Expert Village. I am going to teach you how to properly walk a dog. What you want to do first is get your leash and make sure that your dog is in a calm state. He needs to be sitting down and relaxed as these dogs are right here. If your dog is excited, barking, jumping or wagging his tail too much then when you get outside, he is not going to listen to you. So make sure that he is calm like this and we put the leash on him and then we will go over to the front door and anything that creates excitement we will redo. The important thing to know is that you are always the first one out of the door.Your dog should never lead you. You should always lead your dog. You open your door a lot of times your dog will get excited and go running outside. I have trained my dog not to do that and so they will stand here patiently until I decide to move forward on my command. So then we will walk forward. Now as far as when you are on the street, your dog should never be allowed to sniff the ground, run ahead of you and anything like that. A dog is always at your side or slightly behind you and then you will make sure they are not looking left to right. They will look straight ahead at all times and that makes them concentrate and they are fully concentrating and waiting for your commands. .
