Is there another way to teach springer spaniels to heel without pulling their lead?
Maggie our springer spaniel puppy is now nearing nine months and has turned out to be a lovely dog.
Problem is: she pulls when we walk. She is in obedience training, but we disagree with our trainer, as she wants us to sharply pull Maggie's neck when Maggie wants to run ahead. We refuse to sharply pull Maggie's neck in to submission. Any suggestions?From Anna@love-springer-spaniels.com
I have used that on George and it has worked, but there are other methods. One which is currently very popular is to change direction every time they pull, sending them the message that you control where thry want to go.
It takes time and patience and at first it takes a long while to get anywhere, but it is good with springers as they are bright, and really want to go on their walks. Return to Love Springer Spaniels FAQsReturn to Love Springer Spaniels Homepage
