Some written comments from customers / clients of

Loose Leash Dog Walking Service

Newlands Johnsonville Wellington;

   ...thank you Penny such a good update. She sounds like she is really enjoying her time with you and it really helps to break up her day in the kennel

(and run)

   She is looking forward to seeing you tomorrow - hopefully this rain eases up...

    ...(hubby)... says his walk with her was really good.

    you must be teaching her well !

    ....they were both pretty quiet -

he actually went to bed

and she snoozed out on the couch

    - unusual as it was only 6pm.

    Thanks for your time and effort - he is back on track...

    Thanks for cleaning up the(poop)mess

in the garden!...

...Thanks for everything Penny

    C U out there

   ...That's great he's enjoying his play dates,

i appreciate that he gets the chance to mix with other dogs,

thankyou !

...we had a nice calm dog to come home to last night !

...Sounds like a good walk,

he was nice and happy

when I got home and just chilled for the rest of the night.

Being a young boy, he has lots of energy,

so I'm always happy when he is nicely tired !

...Thanks for taking him on a play date...

...She was nicely exhausted which was great !

We loved the info you left -Thanks...

...loved your letter about her adventures.

Thank you...




You will have noticed how your dog looks to you for Leadership in his/her daily life and you need to continue this theme on your dog walks together.

Another alternative is to ask for a "wait" and "sit", until once again he/she realises once again that it is you that leads the walk. Consistency is the key!

Add in a few other commands as he/she progresses, such as:

"turn Left" & "turn Right" to encourage them to watch you and not anticipate your moves.



Put a Harness and lead on your Dog! it works a treat! Dogs love jobs and are only to happy to put their shoulder into it and work away.

A good pulling technique is head down and three feet on the ground, sound at all familiar ?

Dog Harnesses are used with Working Dogs, for example:

Tracking Dogs, Drug Dogs, Search and Rescue Dogs, Guide Dogs etc... and in Dog Powered Sports such as...

Dog Carting, Dog Drafting, Dog Sulky Driving, Sled Dogging, Mushing, Dryland Mushing, Weight Pulling, Dog Pulled Rolla Bladeing, Dog Pulled Skate Boarding,

Scooter-Joring, Bike-Joring, Ski-Joring, & Cani-Cross.

( have I missed anything?)

Only dog breeds with weak tracheas need to wear a harness, but teaching Loose Leash Walking is a far better and safer idea.

Car Harnesses are great idea to keep not only your dog safe on trips, but also the driver and passengers.
