How to keep GP from crossing in front of you while walking

by Michelle
(Nashville)

I realize my GP wants to herd me but I just failed our pet therapy test because he once again crossed in front of me to say hello to neutral dog. We retest in January. Would anyone know how get stop this behavior? He was great for rest of test but not this. He's pretty strong so he just pulled and crossed in front.

Quick turn
by: Ed

I am sure you have done a ton of training and this my be to simple I train walking by using a very short leash. I keep I'm right at my side and make many quick turns bot into him and away. These quick turns made while saying both left and right makes him less aware of where we are going and seems to get the point across that he must follow. I have not used this with Nava because she is my service dag.

Puppy leash trying with Milo and king
by: Jeanette

I am disabled as is my daughter. We got Milo in May 2016. He is to be 2 years old in december2016. We are his third family. He's part Pyrenees, part St. Bernard. And one of his parents is a white Labrador. He is intended as a beloved family pet., and he is.
He has taken it upon himself without training to help me with PTSD. He has taken it upon himself with out training to become an epilepsy support and warning dog for my daughter.
He does the cross in front of with my daughter. She is 29. So I put out smaller dog king on what we call puppy sleash. Around her waist and around kings collar. She goes everywhere with him he has to follow and he has done this before since he is 12 and we are his only family.

If king tries to crossover I step forward and bump his chest or shoulders with my knees and say turn.

Milo watches this over a couple days. Then Milo the same and I knee bump him while saying turn. It makes Milo look to her and next step I knee bump but Milo here's daughter say turn and good .

Over a time of several weeks this helps Milo learn what turn means . It means turn to me the one with the leash.and then beside me. Milo learned quick partly because he had observation of king.

Hope this helps, jeanette
