The Joy of Dog Training The Gentlelead Way

The Joy of Dog Training the Gentlelead Way 

When training your dog the best way is to always make training positive to your dog and fun.
So when teaching something new use treats and rewards like toys. 
Using a halter for the first time make this a positive item to your dog, so when you firstly introduce it use food and rewards. 
Allow your dog to eat a meal with it on this will make the item positive to your Dog.
Then when you next put it on use food rewards to reward your dog when walking well.
The Halter helps you to train loose lead walking. 
When out walking try not to walk in a straight line put in some turns or cross the road a few times Zig Zagging  so your Dog learns to watch what you are doing. This will help as your Dog will learn that when the Lead tightens you turn. So in zig zagging your walk will focus your dog on to you.
Use the food rewards when your Dog is walking well put in some basic Sits to your walk when giving the rewards.
Positive Training is the best way to teach your Dog.
Positive Training can start as a puppy by just using the lead in the garden so the learn not to fear a lead. BUT to look on it as a positive item Lead = Food and Fun .
We are going to be blogging more How 2 s on positive Training .
