This is David Roe with Blue Dog Ranch, and this is how to control your dog's leash behavior. Most important thing about having a dog on a leash and being controllable is keeping the leash loose. Any kind of struggling with the dog, forcing the dog to stay next to you, too many jerks and pops, any of that is just gonna make the situation worse. For example if you're trying to train your dog to walk on a loose leash you never want to turn right if you have your dog on your left which most people do when they're training. You never want to turn right because then you're always turning and pulling the dog along with you. If you use your body to turn into the dog, first of all going left into the dog will draw always draw the dog back next to you. Also your body is hurting them just like another dog would herd them if they were in a pack and the leash will always stay loose and if that's how you walk them for a while, whenever you have to turn you have to turn into them, use your body to, to bring them next to you then they'll start getting used to being right next to you and later on you could practice the right turns.
