Helpful Tips to Teach Your Dog to Walk Calmly on a Leash

20210822 180719 1

Dogs often get excited when they go out for a walk and can easily become overwhelmed. This
can make it difficult to keep them under control while they’re out and about. Training your dog to
walk calmly on a leash is one of the most important steps to ensuring that you and your pup
have a safe and enjoyable time on walks. Doing so can take time and patience, but with a few
easy steps, you can have your pup walking calmly in no time.

Step 1: Outfit Your Dog with the Correct Leash
Before you start teaching your pup how to walk calmly on a leash, make sure you have the right
equipment. The type of leash you use can make a big difference in how your pup behaves. For
a calm, controlled walk, opt for a 5-foot leash with a comfortable handle. Avoid retractable
leashes, as they can make it difficult to keep your pup close to you.

Step 2: Start with Short, Slow Walks
When you first start teaching your pup to walk calmly on a leash, it’s best to start with short,
slow walks. This will help your pup get used to the feeling of being on a leash, and it will give
you a chance to practice keeping your pup close to you. As you walk, give your pup lots of
praise and rewards for staying close and walking calmly.

Step 3: Make Sure to Keep Your Pup Focused on You
When you’re out on a walk with your pup, it’s important to keep them focused on you.
Distractions such as other dogs, people, and cars can be overwhelming for your pup and make
it difficult for them to stay calm. If your pup starts to get distracted, gently tug on the leash to get
their attention back to you.

Step 4: Practice Walking in Different Environments
Once your pup is comfortable walking calmly on a leash in a low-distraction environment, it’s
time to start taking them out in more stimulating environments. Gradually increase the length of
your walks and practice in different areas, such as parks, busy streets, and busy sidewalks. This
will help your pup become more comfortable with different sights and smells, and it will give
them more practice staying focused on you.

Step 5: Reward Your Dog for the Proper Behaviour After Walks
Once you’ve completed a walk, it’s important to reward your pup for their good behaviour. This
could be a treat, a toy, or a special activity. This will reinforce the behaviour and let your pup
know that they’re doing a good job. With time and patience, your pup will learn to stay focused
and calm on walks.

Training Your Dog to Walk on a Leash

Training your pup to walk on a leash is an important part of responsible pet ownership. Taking
the time to teach your pup the proper way to walk on a leash will help ensure that both you and
your pup have a safe and enjoyable experience each time you go for a walk. With patience and
consistency, your pup will soon learn how to properly walk on a leash.

Training your dog to walk calmly on a leash is a great way to ensure safety and promote good
behaviour. It is important to remember that this type of training takes consistency and patience.
It is important to keep your training sessions short and positive and to reward your dog for good
behaviour. Always remember to use positive reinforcement and to be consistent with your
commands. With patience and consistency, you will be able to successfully train your pup to
walk calmly and safely on a leash.
