Your health & safety matters...

...the last thing any of us want or need is it be pulled over by our dogs & we're especially at risk of this during the winter months ❄️

There are many factors that impact our dogs loose lead walking such as our dogs emotional & mental well-being, our relationship with our dog, & our overall engagement with them too.

However some of the more 'in the moment' & physical tips that can help you on your loose lead walking journey are....

✨ Teaching your dog a core marker system so you can communicate effectively (you can learn how to do this via my self-study course 'Matilda's Marker System')

✨ Teaching an understanding of lead pressure e.g. "I feel pressure on the lead I come to you" rather than pulling against the pressure

✨ Using directional changes to instill the understanding of loose leading walking (don't stop & start as you're only teaching a loose lead when you're stationary not when you're in motion)

👆👆👆~ who has been accidentally making this mistake? We've all been there at some point 🙈

Let me know how these help you & your dog! 🙏

How confident do you feel on a scale of 1 (not at all) to 10 (so confident) that you can walk your dog when it's slippery outside? 🐕‍🦺🚶‍♀️
