Expanded Description:

Is walking your dog a tug-of-war?
At last, a simple way to teach your dog to walk on a leash without pulling your arm off!

In My Dog Pulls. What Do I Do? you will learn Turid’s quick and easy method to train any age, size or breed of dog to walk calmly and quietly on a loose leash. Her approach is humane and based on a solid understanding of why dogs pull and how to work with the dog’s nature and the environment to overcome the problem. City, town or country walking will become more relaxed, reducing stress for dog and owner.

My Dog Pulls explains:
• Why dogs develop pulling problems.
• Simple steps to retraining even a vigorous puller.
• How to rehabilitate the puller with clear, helpful paragraphs.
• Correct use of leashes, collars and harnesses. What works, what doesn’t.
• Troubleshooting problems that arise during training.

Reviews from other canine professionals Turid Rugaas has become a household name. Doggy households anyway! Now, with My Dog Pulls, she helps owners solve one of the most common problems while allowing the dog to be a dog.
Terry Ryan, Lecturer, Author of Coaching People to Train Their Dogs & Outwitting Dogs

Using clear, uncluttered language, Turid teaches owners how to help their dogs to be more civilized—and better companions.
Trish King, Author of Parenting Your Dog, Dir. of Behavior and Training, Marin H. S.

Norwegian dog trainer Turid Rugaas has studied canine social language for over 30 years. In her earlier book, On Talking Terms with Dogs: Calming Signals, she educated dog trainers and pet owners alike about the hidden meaning of a wide range of canine postures, facial expressions and movements. Turid is one of the most popular seminar presenters and travels world-wide sharing her insights and research.

Well written, July 19, 2010
Reviewer: Nick Hof
This is a short book but with great information. As others have stated, the exercises are described in an easy to understand way and have accompanying pictures in great quality that make it so easy to get out and try.

Although walking nicely on leash can also be obtained with clicker training, not everyone wants to try that and this serves as a great first or second choice for those still wanting to use positive reinforcement to teach their dogs and build a relationship.

I also found her view on the use of head collars and harnesses interesting and will be evaluating my own thoughts on those training tools.
 
No more pulling, April 30, 2007
Reviewer: Jennifer Saavedra-Martinez
This is a true testament to 'positive reinforcement' I have tried everything from Head harnesses, body harness, choke leashes, matingale leashes etc. etc. and NOTHING worked. It all takes time and patience and lots more time and patience but in the end it DOES work. If you keep working on consistently it does work!

Thanks so much for writing this book! I will treasure it forever!!
 
it really works, September 15, 2006
Reviewer: Bev Hubbard
I have a six year old Australian Cattle Dog & Border Collie cross. she was a rescue who came from a farm at the age of four with NO leash manners at all.
all of the other books said to stop when the dog pulls and/or go in the opposite direction
this is supposed to teach the dog that pulling gets you nowhere
Daisy learned that pulling causes Bev to stop doing what Daisy wants and she would get frustrated and bark but not come in the opposite direction
(because she wanted to go THE WAY THAT SHE WAS GOING!!!)
this book starts out with that but then you 'shape' the dog to come to you on command
when she goes from behind you to in front of you the leash is slack
REWARD for a loose leash and she gets it...really quickly
read it..try it and it will change your life
