Most of us bring dogs into our lives in hopes that we can include them in as many of our day-to-day activities as possible.
We want companions.
We want our buddy by our side.
But what happens when leash walks look more like a power struggle than the blissful outing we had envisioned before getting a dog? Sadly, that usually means that our dogs get walked less and less, and their behavior on-leash gets worse and worse as a result.
A viscous cycle.
In today's live, Kevin gives you two strategies to enjoy walks with your dog again.
Gear to make the walk easier. For a good number of dogs, the right gear is all that is needed to make walks enjoyable again. Kevin shares some of our favorite harnesses, leashes and other products.
A solid training plan. Dogs are not programmed to walk calmly by our side. That's a vision that we humans dreamed up. So the onus is on us to teach them what it is that we expect. Kevin walks you through a video tutorial to do just that.
