Pulling on the Lead

Pulling on the lead because a dog reflexively opposes restraint, so when a lead tightens and a collar presses a dog’s natural tendency is to pull harder.A dog reflexively opposes rstraint, so when a lead tightens and a collar presses a dog’s natural tendency is to pull harder. Contrary to belief it is not a desire to be alpha dog or dominant. The dog is not being “oppositional” in a continuous, emotional, defiant sort of way, but instead regarding a subconscious physical reflex. Dogs are practical in nature, they will do something if it gets the desired result; pull harder, get their quicker. Dogs love to be outside exploring, it is exciting, stimulating, arousing which triggers an ardent desire to push ahead. All the sights, sounds, smells and activities are often overwhelming.
