Puppy Pulling on Leash?

My German Shepherd is six months old now; her name is Tessy. She is very very strong and energetic. The only problem that I have with her is each time we go out for a walk, she will pull the leash so hard that I will get angry and carry her on my body because it's embarrassing. Please what can I do?

Cesar Millan of te Dog WHisperer has lots of great tips on how to train her to avoid that.

One thing to do is wear her out, run with her a lot so that she is less energetic.

The second is, especially with this breed, you really have to train her not to pull. The quickest way to do this is to authoritately tug on the leash and refuse to keep going with her until she heels. If she is really out of control you poke her in the neck with 3 fingers while saying SHHH loud. This will snap her out of her hurry.

Please stop carrying her, and letting her get away with pulling, this means that the dog is in control of you and, especially with such a powerful breed, you run the risk of perpetuating worse, and more dangerous, habits.


I highly recommend watching old Dog Whisperer episodes on youtube or whatnot

I would not fight with the puppy. Every time the dog pulls I would stop. When the dog does the right thing I would praise and pet.
