I think one issue, like it said, kinda, is that a dog is not exercised enough. So then when a dog does get out they pull. Then the owner doesn't want to walk the dog more, thus causing a chain
Dog didn't get exercised a lot?dog finally gets a walk but tugs like crazy (out of lack of exercise)?owner can't stand getting tugged hence, walks dog less?turns a nice dog to walk with into a
Moral of story, exercise your dog before thinking your dog is just wanting to tug.

Our dog use to pull a lot. I tried everything to get him to walk properly. Unfortunately we were not communicating very well. But as soon I found a method that communicated to him what I wanted, I no longer had any problems.

I find stopping and saying "Uh oh" worked really well. I have also used turning around and walking in the opposite direction.

If you have a puller, I recommend trying a Rokstraps leash! I was recently given one and it is awesome and doesn't hurt the dog at
all! 5_1/

She doesn't pull as hard as when she was a puppy, but she does pull then stop and repeat then run then repeat.

For those of you who have leash pullers, there are several ways to tackle the issue. A gentle lead is one of them, and simply doing an about face or turning to the left or right whenever they pull is another. Some dogs protest against the gentle leader, and some take to it like ducks in water. Dogs usually take to halters much better than gentle leaders, but I think gentle leaders are much more effective. When your dog starts to pull, stop or change direction. As soon as the dog allows the leash to become loose, say "good" and give them a treat at the knee. Once the dog learns that if the leash falls loose you get a treat, they will allow it to fall loose to get that reward. There is no need for prong collars as I have fixed this problem on hundreds of dogs with a clicker, treats, and a halter or gentle leader. Prong collars and choke leashes acerbate the problem and makes the dog reactive intensity much worse. Be consistent, be consistent, be consistent. The more consistent you are, the quicker the dog learns to loose leash walk.
