How to master the dog walk.

Hi Dear pet owner... today we are going to talk about an interesting and very useful subject. Do you know how to walk your dog and master the dog walk? Well... let have a few tips!

* First of all walk in front of your dog. This allows you to be seen as the pack leader.

You should be the first one out the door and the first one in. Your dog should be beside or behind you during the walk. Remember, you are the leader!

* The size of the leash is very important. Use a short one! You will have more control. Attaching the leash to the top of the neck can help you more easily to communicate.

* Setting aside enough time for the dog walk is really important too! Usually 30 minutes would be ok, but specific needs of each dog differ so you can consult your vet and keep an eye on your dog's behavior to see if his needs are being met.

*Rewarding your dog during the walk: After your dog has maintained the proper state of mind, reward him by allowing him to relieve himself and sniff around. Then you need to decide when reward time is over. It should always be less than the time spent focused on the walk.

*After the walk, keep leading! Don't stop leading when you get home. Have your dog wait patiently while you put away his leash or take off your shoes. *And last but not least, reward your dog after the walking! By providing a meal after the walk, you have allowed your dog to "work" for food and water. That's it friends, hope you liked the tips, let's walk our dogs and have a great time with them! That's the best part of all!
