Walking well on a leash
by: Anonymous

Your Pyr should not pull when you walk him. This is not comfortable for either of you. It's also not safe with such a big dog. No one is enjoying the walk.

Take some time, patience and consistency to do the following:

As soon as he starts to pull, stop.

Don't move until there is no tension (it may be just a second so be quick) in the leash. This means he may turn to look at you to say 'what the heck?'
Say 'good boy' (the second there is no tension) and move forward.
He'll pull, again, and you stop, again.
Don't move until there is no tension in the leash etc...

you get the picture. This will take time but in the end, you'll have a much more enjoyable walk.

Rather than a padded harness, get a harness to which you attach the lead in the front. You have more control that way. And, you won't need that 'control' once he's trained.

Padded harness
by: Freeandalive1

My pyr is 10 weeks old. From the sec I got her, I started teaching her to sit the minute she sees me...i reward with treat and lots of love and kisses and pets...then I started telling her to sit and I put her leash on..so now when we are walking, if she gets to far ahead I tell her to sit and reward her with kisses,rubs and love, then we keep moving...sometimes she will turn around in her walk just to come sit at my feet waiting for attention, then she takes off again. We have a big property but I still walk her on the leash getting her used to times I may want to take her on the road with me to a park,etc...after we walk a bit, I bring her to me to sit, reward her and then take off the leash...the rest of the walk I practice with her staying within my voice and I still bring her over to sit and get kisses...but I let her roam within eyesight and call her back every few minutes so she knows she has to stay with me...it's working so far and a joy twice a day for both of us🐫🌞💗
