It started out as a blog about canine reactivity.
It turned into a tale about a dog.
Now, it's mostly a love story.
Long live the love.
Hi Dizzy, Is that a Gentle Leader that you are using on Ruby? Do you find that it works better than a normal collar? We just rescued a stray and I'm trying to find out the best way to leash train him. Eventually I want to have him be able to walk on a normal collar. Thanks!Lindsay
Hi Lindsay!That is a Gentle Leader Rubi is using. I've found it to be the best tool out there for outright physical control of a dog. The main draw back is that it takes a bit of work to get the dog acclimated to it. Here's a nice series on teaching your dog not to pull on leash: http://www.swsdogs.org/Articles/TeachYourDogToNotPull/tabid/124/Default.aspx Good luck!
