WHY IS MY DOG PULLING ON THE LEASH?
There are several reasons why your dog could be pulling on the leash, but here are a few common reasons:
OKAY, SO HOW DO I GET MY DOG TO STOP PULLING ON THE LEASH?
When training loose leash walking, it’s imperative that you consider every leashed event a training opportunity. There are many effective methods to train loose leash walking, but this particular method is my favorite.
Your dog should very quickly pick up on the fact that pulling disrupts the enjoyable walk, but don’t assume that one training walk will do the trick. Loose leash walking requires a high level of skill and restraint from your dog.
Remember, practice makes perfect!

We bought from the SPCA a trainer leash it is a harness that straps around the body and front legs, not the next so don't choke your dog. It has a buckle that your leash connects to on the front of the dogs chest. When walking if your dog starts to pull away it stops them by you controlling their body as opposed to choking or having to yell or command them. We were introduced to this by a certified dog trainer and it was like a night and day difference with our Maggie.
