Zak George is a blessing to the dog community. I love how Mr. George explains how and why a dog pulls along with the tips to stop pulling.
Sir. Duke has gotten much better in regards to pulling. Yet, lots of patients, being consistent, and practices has been required more for me than for Sir. Duke.
Zak is correct having to much distraction is not helpful when I am training Sir. Duke, specially on the leash. Also, interaction with Bojangles and Sir. Duke is important. I notice adding sit or give me your paw action helps the boys stay focus on me and not get lost in the temping distraction around Sir. Duke or Bojangles.
Each dog is different. I notice Sir. Duke will pull to smell to mark something with pee. Bojangles we are working with him on not pulling. He appears to pull for a variety of reason, specially if he sees something of interest ahead of him. Bojangles is a natural hunter. We are trying to teach Bojangles how to walk nice with his personality the focus. He is stubborn.
I agree with Zak, my dogs are not a machine that can be controlled. Sir. Duke and Bojangles do indeed have curiosity, desires and a will of their own. The gift is guiding and training Sir. Duke and Bojangles.
I love how Zak said to the dog, "you are a thinking dog", he is correct, all dogs think. Also, he is Correct nothing great was built in a day. I love how you can see the improvements in how the dog thinks and walks after some time with Zak.
Great tip Zak, counting while the dog walks nicely by your side is a great idea. Great method to see the dogs improvements. I love how Zak gives tons of rewards and the rewards have to be eaten. Notice how Zak reinforces with lots of positives love and praises for rewards. He does utilize the environment has a reward as well.
