Leash Pulling

Understanding why your dog is pulling or reactive on leash will help you unwind the behavior. Here are some of the common reasons dogs pull on leash.


  • Your dog isn’t getting enough exercise or stimulation. Now that we’ve all experienced quarantine, being cooped up all day kinda sucks. Your dog might need more engagement and exercise throughout the day.


  • It works. If they are pulling and you are following, then they are getting what they want and they will do it again.


  • They walk faster than you. Some dogs need to go faster. This falls into your dog probably needs more exercise bucket.


  • They are untrained. Dog training is not innate. So if your dog has not received proper training, then you have no communication tools which makes it much harder to manage your dog on-leash.


  • They see and want something that is more interesting to you (like a squirrel).


  • They have not received proper socialization.
