One of the most common complaints I hear from my clients is “my dog is terrible walking on a leash!” This is a BIG problem. It often makes walking your dog such a miserable experience that eventually the dog doesn’t get walked at all. This is hugely detrimental to the dog, both physically and behaviorally, not to mention what it does to the dog-human relationship. Our dogs need to be walked outside everyday. Exercise requirements vary from dog to dog but walking is not only for fulfilling that exercise requirement, it is also for mental stimulation – your dog needs to sniff, see people, places and things in order to be happy!
