Build Your Leash Walking Skills

Leash walking is much like learning a choreographed dance or synchronized movements with a partner.

It takes consistency in practice and learning how to move with your partner.

You start off learning the basics.

Basic moves, positioning of hands and how to stay connected wit your partner.

The costumes, shoes, stage presence all happens at the end of weeks of practice.

After the awkwardness of stepping on your partner’s toes or even missing a few steps and moving out of alignment with one another.

The same goes for leash walking. No equipment nor tools will make you any more or less successful.

What will help you and your dog walk in step with on another is keeping a rhythm and taking practice one step at a time.

Remaining consistent.

Finding the fun in learning how to move with your dog rather than making your dog walk with you.

Leash walking is all about the developed skill you and your dog learn together.
