Walking is the most natural thing to do, but not always when it comes to walking our dogs on a leash.  Puppies think the leash is a toy to bite and tug on, while some older dogs like to jump, pull and lunge forward to get to where they want to go. 

And for your exceptional cases, they’ll stall. They don’t want to go anywhere. Who’d ever think there was a dog that didn’t enjoy walking? Well, they exist, and you never know what category your dog will fall into until you get out there and start walking. 

While some dogs naturally cooperate, most require training. And this How to Properly Walk a Dog blog series will help you to do just that.  But first, in Part 1 we’ll cover the basics of dog walking etiquette to help ensure the safety of your dog and the courtesy of others as you carry out your walks.
