    Ok…thanks for the replies. I have watched those videos already but i’ll work with her some more on her leash manners and attention. I’m definately going to get her a better collar too see if that helps any. Yes she does have a very restless spirit, first thing I do with her when i get home is take her for a walk/run. During this time is when i’m also trying to teach her leash manners. Should i not do it at this time? Typically she will try to run in front of me and pulling me basically which at full speed i feel is safer than having her at my left because sometimes she cuts in front of me and almost trips me. Do you think it is okay to have her run in front of me when we are running like that? Or should I always try to be in control on the walk/run?

    To Jocomoreno: I do want her to learn heel and i’m trying very hard to teach her that, I think she has to learn the basic leash manners first though.

    For now i’ve taken the week off from training with her because she just got spayed and is recovering from that.

    Again, thanks for all the help.

    I try my best to teach her in an environment without any distractions. It has been working great teaching her, sit, down and climb. Unfortunately outside is the only place where I try and train her leash manners/heel because the backyard doesn’t work.

    As far as the collar i’m just using a regular nylon collar. I’m gonna go to the petstore and see if they have a martingale collar that Mike recommends. I got a halti but she absolutely hated it and was almost impossible to get on.

    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.
