Today's session with Rica was Loose Leash Walking. Being a former street dog she is not very familiar with a leash and she does pull. We worked on the cues Heel (walking by my side and paying attention to me) as well as Let's Walk (walking anywhere as long as there is no pulling). Rica actually picked it up very quickly. The only time she really pulled hard was when we were walking back to the house. She is from Puerto Rico, is not used to the cold, and wanted to go in. At that point I was in total agreement!
