Does your dog pull on the leash? If so, you’re not alone. Leash pulling is a very common problem…and one that you can solve!

ask-alecia-holisticJust last week on the DOG TRAVEL EXPERTS radio show, Tracie Hotchner and I interviewed Alecia Evans, owner and inventor of the Walk In Sync training method, about leash pulling and other issues when traveling with a dog. Please be sure to listen to Alecia’s interview for tips on solving your common problems with your dog as you get ready for this summer’s travel!

Well-known to DogTipper readers for her Ask Alecia column here for the past several years, Alecia is a holistic dog trainer, author, and the inventor of the Walk in Sync. This front-clip harness is designed to be ergonomic for your dog as well. Alecia drew on her holistic background and chiropractic experience to develop a harness that works with your dog to be comfortable and to help the two of you literally walk in sync.

On the Walk in Sync site, you’ll find some great 5 Minute Makeovers, videos that show real life examples of how the Walk in Sync is helping to solve training problems:

    My 1 year old Corgi, gets really excited and pulls when she sees other people and dogs, I have yet to find anything that helps with this.

  • S A

    Sometimes he is easily distracted and really into things so sometimes it is hard to get him to resume walking or ignore distractions on walks.

  • Linda Szymoniak

    I have five rescued Treeing Walker Coonhounds. If you’ve ever had hound, you know they like to follow their noses. I’ve had to work with four of them (the fifth is my senior girl and she’s just not up to pulling any more) and with harnesses I’ve managed to get three of the other four to stop pulling, but my deaf girl, Ran, just won’t stop. Since she can’t hear and when she’s excited on walks and following her nose, she tends to not “check in” for visual commands. She’s the one I need the most help with.

  • Jennifer Leigh Dace

    My biggest challenge with my australian shepherd is that his energy level is way, way higher than mine. I have to let him blow off some of that energy so that he will focus on the task at hand. He is very smart so we do get things accomplished. It is new for me to have all this energy from a dog, but I love it!! We do lots of fetching and we train and compete in disc dog competitions.

    My biggest challenge is her pulling on the leash. When she sees a cat, dog, bird, squirrel….she just about takes my arm off or pulls me into a ditch. I adopted her at 3-years-old so her habits were formed before I got her.
