How to Stop Jumping:

Teaching your dog to walk without pulling can be one the most challenging parts of training a dog! While every dog is different there are some basic concepts that you should know. In this video, Nina the 6 month old LA-SPCA rescue dog, learns how to walk nicely on the leash and I’ll demonstrate how simple it is to teach a dog without using a prong collar, choke chain or shock collar.


In my last video i asked you what you Wanted to see this time and you said you Wanted to see six-month-old nina learn How to walk on a leash without pulling If you’re new or you’re finding my Videos for the first time go ahead and Click subscribe right now that way You’ll know when i upload a new video And it’s free when teaching a dog to Walk without pulling we often see a Complete breakdown in communication and So much frustration as a matter of fact Many professional trainers recommend That you do things like use a choke Chain prong collar or shock collar to Discourage your dog from pulling the Only tools you need to teach a dog to do This are your sophisticated human brain And a patient attitude first understand Why dogs pull on a leash dogs walk Faster than we do very often the dogs That are pulling on a leash are the very Dogs that were bred to have exceptional Endurance and stamina like hunting dogs Or herding dogs or retrieving dogs that Is the complete opposite of walking Slowly next to a person nonetheless dogs Have shown us throughout their history That they’re highly adaptable to what we As people teach them to do do what you Can to try and get that initial layer of Energy out of them before introducing This concept to them dogs are much more Receptive to learning once they’ve

Gotten rid of some of their energy if You have a super high energy dog you Should not be relying on walks as your Dog’s primary form of exercise consider Getting involved with something like dog Sports or taking regular long hikes if Possible dogs need to get tired and they Need to have a proper outlet for that Energy when introducing a concept like This to your dog it’s important to do it Indoors in an environment that they’re Familiar with like your house the last Thing we want to say to our dogs is hey I’m going to teach you something new and I’m going to ask you to do it in the Most distracting environment possible Think about it when she’s pulling what Is she saying she’s saying i really want To get to there So you let her know that’s not the way To get there the first rule is to make Sure you’re not advancing if there’s any Tension at all on the leash both of you Are fantastic with the eye contact but On loosely walking you’re a bit Disconnected from the eyes this can be Achieved by getting their attention with A treat early on but let me be clear We’re not focused on luring our dog this Is just to get their initial attention On us the treat is temporary this way And and this arm will kind of bridge the Eye contact so this goes from here Yes to interact with them often what you

Got to improve on is locking your eyes More let them know you love their Behavior often if they know sit ask them To sit often while on a leash rewarding On sit even if they know sit really well You should still reward in this instance Because you’re combining it with another Behavior walking on a leash without Pulling this makes it more challenging For your dog acknowledge their success Really a sore student No every time and that’s a normal habit For her she’s a jumper so just withhold That reward be patient if your dog does This during lease training do your best To ignore it and focus on teaching one Thing at a time if you need help with Jumping check the description of this Video and i have a fantastic video i Think we’ll go downstairs and try it in The in the outdoor environment our dogs Are not robots quite the opposite They’re very smart beings and smart Beings are curious and very aware of Their surroundings we’re going to give It a shot outside and see how nina does Whenever we change environments on a dog We ask them to do something in an Environment that’s more distracting or Unfamiliar we’re likely to have relapses So it’s important that we take a step Back and be patient with them and work With them in that new environment don’t Wait till you have somewhere to be to

Train this to your dog you won’t be in a Patient mindset and when you’re not Patient progress is unlikely more Important than correcting behavior is Really acknowledging when our dog is Excelling yes hey nina yes I like that she wasn’t pulling there you Know i could see she had already gotten In the habit of pulling because the Closer we got to the door the more she Pulled nina sweetheart hey Sit don’t pull me okay let’s walk Yes good yes good Engagement like this the best time to Correct unwanted pulling is right before It occurs now if you know your dog well You’ll know what i’m talking about they Will foreshadow right before they start Pulling that is your cue to get their Attention onto you and reward them Heavily for acknowledging you right here Since there’s tension on the leash i Need to get her attention back here hey Over here come on no this makes you go Away from that Sit Watch me easy Yes Good Nina no ma’am If you see she’s about to pull stop then Don’t wait for the pulling to occur to Correct Yes

No ma’am She’s a thinking dog look at this Yes good girl This is great remember we want to change As few variables at a time on our dog We’re going to do the same thing we did Upstairs but now it’s a new environment And we’re not asking for perfection but We are asking for improvement it is so Important to work with our dogs on the Things they know in various unfamiliar Environments and to do it often that’s How we get them to internalize the Behavior and really understand it as You’re walking and she starts to pull You take a few feet back right here and Jose brings up the obvious dilemma we Found we weren’t able to move anywhere Yeah and that’s about right that’s how It’s going to be in the beginning i mean That’s you got to get through that first Layer walking nicely on the leash’s baby Steps you can’t build rome in a day Yes good girl And see if i can get two three steps in With no tension i’m rewarding that all Day long give them easy stuff to do like Sitting and sitting often and reward Onset this will keep them motivated and Enthusiastic to learn Yes come on Good this way Good this way Over here hey nina sit

Yep Perfect Look at that This is subtle but observe how susie Resists the urge to tug on the leash When she changes directions this isn’t Just about a more humane way to train a Dog it’s about actually teaching our Dogs to think i like how you stuck with Her there a lot of people tend to just Pull the leash there but you stuck with Her when you see that attention is about To slip and they’re about to go into Pulling mode insist on getting their Attention back on you again rewarding Them for the behaviors you like Yeah there you go that was good she Started to die off and look ahead but You got her That is perfect this is interesting a Real life distraction presented itself Look at me Good girl jose does a great job here of Saying i know you hear that so do i i Know what it is i know how to proceed Pay attention to me let’s keep going Please again do this in your own way but Understand that dogs are perfectly Capable of understanding these concepts If your dog is so distracted you may Need to get in front of them to block Their view in order to get their Attention on to you when you feel you Have their attention move out of the way

Let them look at the distraction but Still communicate to them you want them To stay now we have a distraction coming So we’re going to try and enforce it Stay in real life this is a wonderful Opportunity to train in real world Conditions she’s laying off the Distraction That’s very good remember we don’t need To be terribly reliant on treats moving Forward that’s because the environment Will eventually serve as the reward in Other words your dog gets to enjoy the Walk without interruption as long as They’re walking without pulling let’s Walk this way walk in and look at this This is four five six seven eight i like To count the number of steps i can get In reasonably without pulling occurring Nina sweetheart This way One two three Four five six seven eight nine ten 11 12 13 14. i mean this Look there you go see that that’s what You love when she goes when she’s Looking up at you let her know in your Own parental way how much you love that I’d say we had a pretty successful Training session with nina there’s still Several weeks of consistency ahead in Order for her to really internalize the Behavior but she’s got two wonderful

People who care very deeply about her Well-being and this should be the first Consideration when teaching a dog if you Like this video make sure you click Thumbs up my next video is going to be Teaching lexi to stay at the doorway Without running into the road she’s a Wonderful dog but for the video after That would you rather see mitzy and Boris learn some fun tricks and basic Training or would you rather see nina The dog you saw in this video learn how To listen to us from a distance remember Most of your dogs as you know will Listen to you when you’re very up close But if you get farther and farther away They don’t tend to listen to you i’ll Show you how to do that if you choose That video okay guys we’ll see you next Time
