Great info! I would also
add:

DO NOT use a head collar in combination with a long line or retractable leash, as the dog could get whip lash if he decides to run. Only use head collars with a standard 4' or 6' leash. Also never give a corrective jerk or leash pop with a head
collar.

DO NOT use choke or prong collars unless you are a trained professional or are working with one. Spinal, nerve, or tracheal injury can occur if the dog is allowed to continually pull against this type of collar, or if the walker incorrectly "yanks" on the dogs
neck.

DO make sure your dog's collar fits correctly. Collars that are too loose can come off, while ones that are uncomfortably tight can irritate the dog and cause him to be reactive.

That is a good point about the jerking of a leash, my dog has gotten more agressive toward other dogs on walks so i may try your tips towards calming her instead of jerking her from dogs.

Great
info.
It is so true that not jerking your dog since it will cause
aggression.
I train my new German shepherd in rough method and it only took two weeks changing her
personility.
With a lot of love, good treats, good communication, my coco turns back such a great dog excellent walking, play well with peope and other
dogs.
My two cents...

I really like how positive reinforcement is used. It works so much better for everyone involved and is more effective (sp?) than other methods.

Hmm.. Didn't realise pulling back the dog when others approach leads to aggressiveness.

I was very nieve to think that people respected other peoples pets and property. A local business owner took his dogs with him to work everyday, while he had breakfast at his daily stop someone stole his dogs. My friend put it in perspective and said that desperate or dumb people will steal dirt. I suppose that is where the saying comes from that it takes all kinds to make this world go 'round.... This discussion came up when I was going to take my dog for a drive and run into 7-11... Then I remebered the business owner : (....Never Never Never let your dog out of your sight

I agree. Except the harness part. I have trained by Golden Retriever to walk on my left side only, this helps me to have a little more control,and was told by a trainer that was the proper way. When walking and other dogs approach barking he goes to see them in a submission, and then the dogs are soon playing. Who in the right mind would leave the dog (child) outside while shopping?
