"My Dog Pulls - What Do I Do?"

Postby spiritdogs » Thu Mar 22, 2007 2:47 pm

This is a booklet by Turid Rugaas on the subject of dogs that pull on leash. Since that's probably the number one complaint I hear from my students (the other two are "how do I get him to stop jumping up?" and "I want him to come when I call him"), I'm curious if any of you have read it, and whether you think it would benefit the average joe just trying to train his family dog.

I have just ordered her other book on calming signals, as I think that is really interesting and I would love to learn more about it. I have read some, and it is wonderful to be able to observe and understand your dog's communication with you/others/other dogs this way. Ok, I am getting carried away, back to topic:

Regarding the book you mention, I did not order it as I have heard that you can get a lot of that information on her website if you do a search, she does a lot of Q and A there. However, I have a feeling I will order it at some point: I have heard a lot of good things about her methods..and I am sure the information is presented in a way that just is an improvement to Q and As...

If you have looked into working on leash pulling, the book isn't really going to tell you anything new.

It's especially handy for people who need a little more info than written instructions, but you might not need it.
