Dog walking FAQS

Taking your dog on a walk is meant to be an enjoyable and pleasurable activity, however, sadly in many circumstances; it can be a chore for both you and your dog! Our dog walking FAQS aim to try to help you get the most out of walking your dog.

Q: How do I stop my dog pulling!

When your dog is always pulling, it's a sign that he's trying to be dominant or perhaps he's just interested in something you've not noticed. For your dog to walk well on the lead, you both need to compromise! If you find he's constantly pulling, a dog walking harness that fits over his nose known as a gentle leader is a great idea and one of the best ways to put this bad habit to a stop. You can also make his walks more fun take a look at our dog walking FAQs for more info.

Q: How do I stop my dog attacking other dogs?

If your dog is aggressive on the lead, then this is a dangerous trait and something that can turn your walks into a nightmare. The bad news, if he's an older dog is that it's probably something that won't go away. The first thing we recommend is speaking to your local dog class as with a bit of socialization he may change. They'll also be able to assess your dog and give you their expert advice and answer your dog walking FAQs.

One thing to remember though is that a walk is your dog's time so try your best to make sure he enjoys it.
