How-to-Stop-Leash-Pulling-In-5-Minutes

Are you tired of being dragged behind your dog by the leash?

Do you wish there was an easier way than training to get your dog to stop pulling on the leash?

Maybe you’re in the middle of training him and need a quick fix while you’re at it.

You’ve arrived at the right place.

We needed an immediate solution to our dog’s pulling!

We had no idea how to care for, much less train, our first dog when we adopted him.

We probably should have chosen an easier dog in retrospect, but Dobby was the one who was meant for us.

So there we were, with a medium-sized dog who was almost fully grown, had no idea about housebreaking, and had never been on a leash in his life.

Dobby was also terrified of being outside because he was deeply traumatized.

We were in serious danger.

We’d fall or be injured as a result of how hard he pulled, and he’d become terrified and try to flee.

It’s a miracle we all made it through those first few weeks.

When we realized how much we needed to learn before we could even begin training him, we knew we needed a quick fix, something to make walking Dobby bearable until we could properly train him.

Fortunately, we found three hacks that completely transformed our lives.

In less than 5 minutes, you can stop a dog from pulling.

Does it seem too good to be true?
That’s not the case.

It was the only thing that kept us alive and sane.

Three quick, easy, and effective methods for getting your dog to stop pulling on the leash right away.

Are you prepared? Let’s get started.

Tip 1: Choose the Proper Equipment and Apply It Correctly

A no-pull harness should be worn by every dog, regardless of temperament.

However, you’ve probably heard people complain that they don’t work.

We found that the harness is just as important as how you wear it.

The leash should be attached to the front of the harness rather than the top.

When your dog tries to pull, this will make him feel restricted.

You’ll notice him immediately begin to walk alongside him in order to avoid feeling the leash on his legs.

As promised, it’s quick and simple!

While there are numerous no-pull harnesses on the market, we have a favorite.

The Rabbitgoo No-Pull Harness was chosen because it is padded (very comfortable for the dog), sturdy, glow in the dark, and comes in a variety of stylish color options.

Tip #2: Exhaust your dog before taking him for a walk.

Yes, if you want to tire out a high-energy dog, this may take longer than 5 minutes.

However, in just 5 minutes, a lot can be accomplished.

Make him chase the ball, perhaps up a hill to tire him out faster.

Allow him to get his zoomies on before walking him in a fenced area.

Actually, whatever you want your dog to do, this is a great tip.

If you get rid of his excess energy first, training or anything else that requires him to focus will go much more smoothly.
 
Tip 3 – Keep His Attention on You at All Times

It’s an old trick that still works. It is necessary to hold whatever your dog enjoys the most.

Use toys, treats, or even a tennis ball to your advantage.

Treats are the most effective for our dogs.

We’d take a handful of small treats, put them in our hand, close it, and walk in front of our dog.

We used to feed him every few steps at first. Then, over time, the distance between treats grew wider.

From the first time we tried it, Dobby would not focus on anything else but us and our hands.

It’s especially effective if you do it right before feeding time because he’ll be even more focused on the treat!

Just make sure you give him the treats; otherwise, he’ll eventually give up.

Also, make those treats as low in calories as possible, or you’ll have to walk your dog, even more, to keep him from becoming overweight!
