If you’ve ever walked a dog who constantly pulls on the leash and seems more interested in anything else but you, then you know how frustrating it can be. But have no fear! With a little patience and some training, you can have your furry friend staying by your side in no time. Here’s how:
First, you’ll need to get your dog used to being by your side. Start by walking with her on a leash, and rewarding her when she stays close to you. You can also use a clicker to mark the behavior you want.
Practice Makes Perfect:
Next, you’ll need to practice this in different situations, like when you’re walking around the block or going for a hike. Make sure to keep the rewards coming, so she knows that she’s doing what you want.
Eventually, your dog should be able to stay by your side even when there are distractions around. Just keep up the good work and be patient, and you’ll have a faithful companion who always wants to be by your side.
