Being part Bernese Mountain Dog, pulling is in Maggie's DNA. But that's not ideal when we go for a walk. Tonight we initially used a very high rate of reinforcement (lots of clicks and treats) to teach Maggie that looking at us and being near us was a good thing. In no time she was walking with us and we were able to greatly reduce the rate of reinforcement.
