A leash can be one of the best tools you can use in the process of training your Golden Retriever. However, before using a dog leash to train your Golden Retriever, there are several things you need to consider in order to make the training process safe and proper for your Golden Retriever. They are as follows:
– Decide you need your dog to be trained how
It takes discipline, consistency and time to train the dog to be able to walk at your side, never tug at the rope or vague to chase squirrels. But if it is your goal, you can do it. On the other hand, you may feel it does not matter if your dog goes first in front of you, as long as the animal does not pull the rope too hard. In cases like this, harness flexibility or head halter can help you without the need of extra training. The key is to know what you are going and think the same with other people who walk their dogs.
– Buy the right equipment
No need reins with fixed length are 120 to 180 cm. The rope can be an extended and very long rope that will make this training more difficult. To use the neck strap with buckle ordinary leashes or hook; necklace skid; halter head; or harness flexibility. Do not use a collar or leash that choke the neck when the dog is pulled by it, unless it is being practised by professional trainers.
– Make every occasion a walk into the training session
Consistency is the key, then until your dog can walk without pulling the rope, all the activities of a walk, whoever takes a walk, a training session. Make this activity remains short and pleasant. Going for a walk away with an untrained dog will only make you and your dog is equally frustrated.
