Walking your dog is a great way to get exercise and fresh air, but it's important to do it safely. Here are 8 things you should NOT do when walking your dog.
When your dog pulls on the leash, stop walking and wait for them to calm down. Then, start walking again and reward them for walking calmly.
Only let your dog off-leash in a fenced-in area where they can't run away or get into danger.
There are many safe and effective ways to train your dog without using a choke or prong collar.
Instead of yelling or hitting your dog, use positive reinforcement techniques to train them.
Dress your dog in a warm coat and boots if it's cold outside. And avoid walking them for long periods of time in extreme cold.
This will help you stay prepared for any unexpected situation.
