We have been leash training Scarlett and Chelsea separately until now. Scarlett came to us terrified of leashes and always refuses to leave the yard when she’s on-leash. With consistency, she’s getting better but it’s always a struggle to get her to take the first step off our property. With this in mind, we decided to do Chelsea’s leash training separately so she doesn’t develop any bad habits. Lucky Harley gets to come on double the walks since he’s trained 🙂 Well…Scarlett and Chelsea have been doing so well with their training, we decided to take them on their first walk all together today. It was very exciting and we forgot some of our prior training (pulling!) but overall, everyone did great! If you read about Scarlett’s accident Friday night, then you see she is feeling much better! Here are some pictures from the walk around the neighborhood.
We hope you had a wonderful Sunday and weekend as well. We are going to continue to walk them together since they did remarkably. We’ve come a long way from Scarlett gluing herself to the ground and Chelsea trying to run for cover in every bush within reach.
How did you train your dogs to walk properly on-leash? We’d love to hear your tips!
