Ollie did absolutely fabulously with his Loose Leash Walking training. We began in the driveway, standing still, and simply waited for him to look at us. When he did we clicked and treated. We did this several times, then began to move a few steps. When he moved with us we
clicked and treated some more. By this time he learned that if he paid attention to us not only did he get a treat, but he got to move forward. We then continued with a high rate of reinforcement as we walked up and down the sidewalk. We also took the opportunity to socialize him, by creating a positive association with food, when noisy trucks went by and when he met an Amazon delivery man!
