Hi, I had a question on Leash Manners and attention. Not sure if it should be on this sticky or a new thread but here goes. I have a 1 year old female Bull Terrier and man is she a stuborn dog. She knows basic commands but will only do them when she wants too. The most frustrating part for me is when we are walking. I try to keep her at my left side at all times but she keeps trying to pull forward. I’ve been trying what you said on the leash manners video. I become a stake in the ground pretty much and just stop and say my dogs name. But she usually doesn’t look at me for a while so i’m just standing there waiting for her to look at me saying her name. Many times when she does look at me or not if i turn around and go the opposite way she just plants herself in the ground. She pretty much forces me to pull her in the direction I want to go, sometimes she will even try to get out of her collar. Should i be pulling her or what? Thanks.
