      Eddie Castrejon although I was being sarcastic, some friends of mine are too lazy to carry their dogs. Maybe they’re not alone.

      They can get the attention of the dog with treats for short bursts. However if you dont have treats, what do you do? And also, some dogs will ignore treats for a higher value thing (dogs, cats, noise etc.)

    I started teaching a stray two days ago using your method. It has been working really well!

    If you have suggestions for introducing a dog to cats that would be helpful.

      agreed Zak needs to do a video with a pulling dog like a Husky. I trained my husky to heel but it’s difficult for them to not want to pull. we do Urban Mushing together because her pull drive is so high I’d like to see him to try and handle a full grown Husky.

      Jessica parks you shouldnt expect your dog to heel for long periods of time. The walk is supposed to be for them to enjoy. Depending on where we’re walking, my husky will walk 3-10ft in front of me on a loose leash. Ive taught him the command “slow” when he needs to slow down & “this way” when he needs to look at me because we’re changing direction from where he’s trying to go. He pulls to the side when he wants to sniff, so “leave it” is also important. He does well on a collar or his harness. It took a good two years to get really consistent communication & still occasionally give high value treats to keep him motivated. I only have him heel if we’re in a very crowded area. We go on 3-5 mile walks in a city setting at a time, so lots of distractions.

      My dogs aren’t foreign to Mushing commands. They know onby, Gee, Haw, hike, and I don’t expect my dog to heel all the time lol. I expect my dogs to respect my commands. I think you misunderstood my comment. Thats ok it happens. Let me be a little clearer. I think he needs to show a dog that takes longer than a 15 minute video to train loose leash walking so there’s more of an accurate depiction of what the majority of northern breeds face.

      Jessica parks You said that you taught heel as an alternative to pulling, so I was responding to that cause lots of people think their dog should walk behind or beside them. I’ve been a bit lazy to teach directional commands, but need to cause we go hiking a lot when he’s off leash and it would be useful if I could tell him which direction to go ahead of time.
      There are videos out there that claim: stop pulling in 10min etc which just put a prong collar on the dog or do the back & forth walks with dogs that don’t pull. I agree that Zach’s arent the most detailed videos, they just get you started, but I’ve repeatedly heard him say it takes months to years to get good communication on a variety of behaviors. Its obvious this dog has had a lot of training, and Zach is showing how to proof a few things.
      The kikopup channel has more detailed explanations for approaches to leash manners with positive reinforcement/negative punishment.

      Well if hes 8 or 9 months you need to train him now before he gets older if you don’t or cant train him he will keep doing it.

    Is that Lafreniere Park in New Orleans? I saw a crawfish flag in a previous video, which cues me in that you may be making these videos in my hometown!

      MY pitbull pup is just 8 months old she is for the most part a good dog I’ve watched your videos since she was 8 weeks old … I don’t know why she is so vocal very loud as if she’s talking to me. she is spoiled but I won’t let her be aggressive try to hold me. however she isn’t good on a leash and im working on her jumping .. I often wonder if she will protect the house and me I do have her hold and release. now I need to teach her how to attack and hold until I tell her to release. I do make her focus and look at me when training also I don’t let her stare me down she turns her head before I take my eyes off of her. not sure if I’m doing everything correct
      can you give me feedback on what I do right or wrong.
      thank you

    ZZak, I have been a fan of yours since I adopted amazingly strong puppy at 2 months old. Everything he has learned has been from your videos. I had no experience in the beginning. I am proud that we have come this far.

    I have a serious issue right now. He is about 1.5 years and today for the first time he pulled me face first into the dirt because he wanted to say hello to my neighbor. He is a very friendly loving dog who has muscles on his muscles. I have never seen such a strong muscular dog. I am very proud of my boy but I need for him to listen to me.

    I am going through chemotherapy right now. As I have Stage 4 Lymphoma. I have two ESA dogs. Normally I walk them together. Recently I have not always had the strength due to the treatments. I need to learn quickly how to stop Paws from pulling me in the direction he wants to go. Especially when he is super excited like he was today. I don’t want to land on my face again or worse have him pull away from me.

    Any advice you can give would be very much appreciated. Thank you kindly. Paws mom <3

      could you use a front-attach harness? like the ruffwear front range? you’ll still need to do more training but it will cut his leverage on you.

    Start off w a pong collar, then move to a choke collar… they look intimidating but when used right will not hurt them at all
