First time springer spaniel owner with pulling problems!!!
by Rhiannon Roberts
I'm 17 and got my very first springer, Pansy, for christmas 2010 as my little beshion/yorkshire terrier sadly had to be put to sleep the august before.
It took me a while to accept her as being mine for a while as I was still greiving and wasn't used to owning such an active dog, mum however thought it would be a good way to get me out more.
Now we've started to bond more and we've just started obedience classes, only problem with her she pulls, she's only 8 months and it feels like I'm getting no-where! I tried a choke-chain (although I HATED it!) and now I'm trying a gentle-lead. Is there any advice or techniques I could use with this gentle-leader as she's still finding a way to pull, help!From Anna@love-springer-spaniels.com
Try this technique
as soon as she pulls, turn in the opposite direction, she will soon learn that pullin means she won't get to where she is going.
