Collars can harm your dog's neck. Use a front-clip harness for better control.
Skipping the Harness
Flexi-leads make it hard to control your dog. Use a regular 4-6 foot leash.
Don't let your dog pull on the leash. This rewards and reinforces bad behavior.
Poor Leash Habits
Stay alert and help your dog focus on walking politely past people, dogs, bikes.
Avoid distraction and pay attention to your dog for safety and training.
Eyes on Your Phone
Make sure leash, collar or harness fits properly for comfort and control.
Your dog should wear ID with your current phone number.
