How do you train a dog to walk next to you?

Whenever I take my dog on a walk its a struggle to have him walk beside me. I hold his leash next to me but he always is pulling away. I cant seem to train him…

  2. The Voice Of Reason said :

    a choke collar and a traffic lead…. what that is a leash that is only about 8 to 12 inches long

  3. Holy Shite said :

    Make him walk correctly and if he doesn’t spank him or do some form of punishment. Reward him when he does walk correctly. He’ll eventually get the message.

  4. sparkly girl said :

    you just have to keep working with him- my husband trains coon hounds and he walks them up & down the yard a million times. if he starts pulling kind of snap the leash (not hard you dont want to hurt him) & they usually will stop- just keep working & hell get it

  5. Reo said :

    Conditioning with reward and gentle scolding. All a dog wants is to please you. Use a firm hand and your dog will soon go where you go happily.

  6. Hot_Momma said :

    A shock collar. You will only have to use it once or twice. Or take him to obedience classes.

  7. alwaysmoose said :

    Get a gentle leader. They are like 30 bucks, not the head kind but the chest kind. Also hold the end of the leash in your left hand, let the leash go behind your back and hold the part closer to the dog with your right hand.

  8. pauble8 said :

    I suggest you watch The Dog Whisperer. That guy is amazing and every episode has a dog walk training session.

  9. Jackie said :

    Use some sort of bait/treat to hold his attention. Also, depending on the size and breed of the dog, I would recommend using a Head Halti. They are kind of like the face harnesses you use on a horse. By controlling the dog’s head you are better able to control the rest of the dog. If the dog pulls, it would be distracting and slightly uncomfortable for the dog, but in no way painful.

    well you get a puppy treat then you call 4 his name…he should come to you

  11. Youngburk87 said :

    jerk his neck and say heel. if hes a lab or golden retriever its much easier to train them. If you tie them on somethin heavy like a cynder block or something for awhile when he walks with you he wont pull as hard.

  12. mayride said :

    my first dog was really loyal, he would walk with me wherever i went and even try to get in the car with me and if i went to a neighbors house he would wait outside for.. but he died after 13years and I got another dog and he runs the complete opposite direction of me so just get a more loyal dog

  13. shapasshun b said :

    Hold him by his leash and call him by his name.

  14. Jane H said :

    Be very strict, make them walk on your left side. You can also take them to dog school, if they ever obey treat them like a queen/king for about ten second with rubbing their tummy, giving them treats and saying good boy/girl, and smile really big 🙂 Also when you’re training a dog give them treats like ham, cheese and bits of bread. By the way I’ve always noticed that dogs that have breath mint bones always have messed up teeth. Take long walks with him/her around a near park to train him/her. The nicer you are to the dog the better they train even though you have to be strict.

    Whenever my dog gets ahead of me I stop and stop her. Then I make her leash shorter and hold it straight up so there isnt any slack so she HAS to walk next to me. (kinda like how show dogs are walked at dog shows.) Good luck! It’s going to take some practice and patience! 🙂

    this is tricky, as dogs pull so they can get to interesting places and smells – it is boring for him to plod next to you politely! But it can be taught.
    You need cheese treats, or chopped hot dog, or somethiing that he loves. You need alot of time! and patience. When you start the walk, try and do so with him relaxed, not excited and jumping all over the place. If he is, wait until he calms down. pen the door and make him sit, say ‘Heel’and you go out first. The moment he starts pulling, step quickly in front of him, or turn around sharpley and go in the opposite direction, this will make him realise he has to watch and follow you, not go his own sweet way. When he is heeling nicely, give him praise and cheese! and he’ll get the idea. Choke collars/chains are not necessary, and cause pain and anxiety all round.

    You could try a ‘Gentle Leader’ on him. I have used it on the ‘puller’ in my family and was amazed at the transformation in this dog. He used to take me for a walk prior to using the G.L. but now he just trots along beside me and doesn’t attempt to pull. Worth a try!

    Just tap in Gentle Leader in your search engine and you’ll be able to read all about them. There is also a list of stockists on there. I got mine from Canine Supplies.

    Doing this correctly with success relies on far to many concepts that you can learn here…things like timing corrections, what type of corrections, types of rewards, ways to walk and so forth need to learned in a hands on demo by a good trainer…invest some bucks and learn that your dog can be a pleasure to walk too…like he is at home///it’s worth it

  19. talk_to_karen_today said :

    hold onto the leash firmly without slack. he needs to learn the word HEAL. Every once in a while, let out the slack a little bit at a time. If he stays beside you, then he is learning. Make sure you praise, praise, praise! Working on it with my dog.

    In case you need more information, i looked into a search engine.

    If you find nothing working for you, you should take him to a trainer.

    I had the same problem and with my 115 pound Golden Retriever. I didn’t take him for a walk, he took me for a drag!

    I don’t like the pinch collars, so I bought a harness for him, and I hook the leash to that, instead of to his collar. When he gets too far ahead of me, a sharp tug and a “NO” will make him stop. When you are next to him and there is slack in the leash, a “good dog” praise will help him understand what you expect from him. Be patient, some dogs learn this more quickly than others. It may take several walks, and you may have to remind him at the beginning of each walk, but he will learn and your walks will be more frequent because they will be so much more enjoyable for both of you.

    The harness can be purchased at any major pet supply chain and looks like this:

    You have to let it know that you are in controll. NOT him/her! Rap the leash around your hand to were it collor is right next to your hand. When it barks tug on the leash and say “SHH”. Or when He/she trys to pull away, tug on the leash. But make sure you leave a few inches from the collor to your hand.

    The Dog Whisper, is the most amazing dog handler!
    Watch his show, and you could even call him((if you need ALOT of more help))
    I watch his shows all the time!
    its on channel 111
    hope i helped! xD

    A couple of obedience classes will help with this

    It can be kidna hard to leash train a dog.
    The best way that I have founf to do it is:
    1. First have your dog sit down next to you. (always have the dog sit and be calm whenever putting the leash on). Also you should always walk out the door first to establish that you are dominant and in control/pack leader.
    2. Keep the leash somewhat short. Do not use the extendible ones when you are training because it just makes things more difficult.
    3. Try to keep the dog right by your side. If it starts to wander or walk in front or back stop and have the dog sit again.
    4. You are in control. When you want to walk again, then go.
    5. Keep stopping having the dog sit next to you. This is going to try and stop the patttern of the dog thinking it can do it’s own thing.

    Hopefully this will help you. It’s kinda the Alpha Dog thing. You need to be the one that says go and stop and not the dog. Just be persistent with this.

    Don’t walk your dog using a retractable leash as this only teaches the dog to pull. The dog walks forward and he gets more lead to do so, so retractable leashes reinforce the pulling. If he pulls hard with a regular leash, get a head collar. Head collars work on the premise that a dog has to go where his nose is going. The dog also has a lot less strength in his nose than his neck so they can’t pull as hard. However, if you do get a head collar make sure to never give your dog “corrections” or leash pops with it as it can damage his spinal cord/vertebrae.

    I train my dogs without punishment (although I admit that I’ve been known to raise my voice if they really tick me off). When I take one of my dogs for a walk and he starts to pull, I just stop. When you use this method dogs quickly learn that if they pull their owner stops walking so pulling is actually counterproductive to what they want to do (which is walk forward). Stop and stand like a post – don’t hit him or say anything to him. When the leash relaxes, start walking again (you can say “good boy” before you start walking again). Personally I don’t care if my dogs are at my side when we’re walking, I just don’t want them to pull me, so a relaxed leash is all I ask for.

    You can also use clicker training as a very effective method to teach yout dog to heel. Clicker training pairs a sound (the clicker) with a reward (usually a food treat). That way when you click the dog knows that he was doing the behavior that earned him the treat at the very moment you clicked and not the moment he ate the treat (which may be several seconds later). It’s a very effective method of training that strengthens the bond between you and your dog with positive interactions instead of degrading the bond through punishment and fear based training.

    In obedience training, that is called heel. You can go to Training to get some help, but that is very precise. I assume you want him to walk gently.

    If you want Heel, try training, if you want gentle, try:
    1. Dogs love to go for a walk, with all the smells, it is like walking thru a beautiful art gallery to us.
    2. Your dog (like many others) has learned that you will walk, if he will pull, so he thinks that you will only walk, when he pulls ! So, you have to re-train him otherwise. Patience !
    3. Find a stretch of road that you can walk for training purposes for 10 minutes. Plan out for 30 days, If you skip 3 days, start over.
    4. First day, Walk as normal. When he pulls, simply stop. Don’t pull, don’t say anything… Just stop. He will look at you, he may sit, he may come back.
    5. If he sits, then start walking, if he comes back, praise a lot, then start walking (Understand that walking may be more important to him than praise at that moment… but that’s OK)
    6. He will start to pull immediately. Repeat Steps 4 – 5.
    7. Do this for 10 minutes, then end the training session and go back home. You can take him for his normal pulling walk, or anything else you normally do.
    8. Do this everyday for 2 weeks. Notice his changes. He will try to learn, and he will try to pull harder… and he will slowly give in.
    9. If he gets reasonable, extend the method to the nomal pulling walk… but just for the last 10 minutes.
    10. Keep up the 10 minute sessions, If all is on schedule, he will pull a little bit at about 12 -15 days, then give up. After about 20 days, extend the method to the last half of the normal walk.
    11. During the 10 minute sessions of day 25 – 30, he may make a perfunctory pull, but it should be minor… if you have been consistent.
    12. Now work his normal walk sessions the same way. He may pull a little, it it should diminsh quickly.
