If you have a herd of dogs that you must walk frequently, here are some keys to make of this activity enjoyable for you and your pets.
If you walk in front of your dog, it helps you appear as the leader of the herd. If you let the dog walk first, it will feel in command. You must always be the first to leave and the first to enter anywhere, and the canine must always be by your side or behind you.
The shorter the leash, the stronger control you’ll have. Put the leash on the top of the dog’s neck. This will help to show the dog that you are the master. Make sure to always have the leash secured next to your body, it will help generate a sense of respect of the dog towards you. Always keep the dog’s safety in mind when giving him directions or making corrections.
Dogs, as humans, are diurnals, that’s why, taking morning walks are ideal. Make sure to make them at least thirty to sixty minutes long and keep in mind that every dog’s needs are different. Consult with a veterinarian and be aware of the canine behavior to check if his needs are being fulfilled.
If the dog has behaved correctly it is important to give him a reward with free time to sniff around and relieve oneself. How much time must you give him? A little under the time of the time frame of his good deed.
Lastly, don’t forget to pick up after your dog. It is possible that you may need more than one bag, so make sure to have a roll of garbage bags.
There’s no doubt that you’ll be the best dog walker in town!
