Leash handling

Leash handling is an important lesson for a potential trainer like you to learn. It will increase the comfort level for both you and your dog. The leash is the link between you and your dog, so learn to handle it properly.

• Stand with your arms dangling loosely by your sides with the palms facing inwards.

• Loop the leash over your right thumb and let the loose end cross your palm.

• Then fold the leash accordion style, allow the loose end to show under your little finger.

• Let the leash pass along the thumb, index finger, and palm of your left hand.

• Attach the leash to your dog's collar.

• This position is called the control-start position. It gives you a better control over your dog.

• You must keep your right hand stationary. Make all corrections with the other hand.
