How to train a dog without using a leash
Dog training is a lot like teaching a child to ride a bicycle.
You can’t just whip out your iPhone and start teaching a dog to run.
You have to teach them to walk.
But the key is that you’re giving them a physical connection.
“A lot of dog training is like teaching an old lady how to ride,” says Brian Ritter, founder of the dog training company Ritter Dogs.
“It’s really the same thing.”
In the same way, training a dog not to use a leash will help you understand your dog better.
It’s not just the training you do that counts, though.
You also have to train your dog to recognize you and respond appropriately.
The best way to do that is to have a lot of people around the dog.
To help you find the right people, Ritter offers an online list of people he believes will be the best dog trainers for you.
You can search for a trainer by name or by location.
Ritter also recommends having a social worker on hand to work with you.
“It’s a lot more rewarding to have someone who’s there to get your dog’s attention,” he says.
If you’re looking for a great dog training guide, Ritters list is an excellent place to start.
