Loose Lead Walking with Otis

Otis loved to pull on the lead! He'd go like a truck, rushing everywhere, even choking himself if on his collar. Heck, he tugged so hard that he pulled a muscle in his mum's arm as she was walking him.

Mr Bones carried out a 'Loose Lead Walking' training session, this video was taken after just one and a half hours of putting some self control techniques in place, then building up to walking outside. Note how focused Otis is, better yet, see how happy he looks! The turns and stops are put in to keep him on his toes, wondering what is going to happen next and ensure he's taking direction from his mum. The next stage will be to reduce the frequency of the rewards, asking for more work in return for less pay.
