Dog pulls on leash tried everything

Hi! I have a 14 month old dog that I got when he was 4 months old. He had to have a surgery and is now on pn meds. When we get home, he is fine. I then take him for walks and he pulls on the leash. My husband and I have tried so many things to get him to relax but nothing seems to work. Any ideas?

I'm sorry to hear that you are dealing with this issue right now. I would suggest that you take some of the pn meds that the vet prescribed to your dog and give him some more. He needs to have a pn-free life, and that starts right now. You will need to watch your dog carefully for signs that he may be over-medicated, but otherwise he will be fine.

I have a 4-year old Chihuahua/Shih Tzu mix. He is on 3 different types of pn medication (some of them are long-acting and need to be administered dly), and I also give him a long-acting muscle relaxant.

We have gone through numerous different approaches to teaching him to walk on the leash and none of them have worked out. He will walk, but he will also pull and/or lunge for anything he wants to eat or play with.

Our current method is that we walk and talk as a family, and if he pulls on the leash, we ignore it. We also keep the treats out and we feed him right before we walk. His pn meds are only given when he is awake.

We have also tried the "hold the leash" method, where I try to take hold of the leash at an appropriate time. For the most part, he will either go off and eat a treat or play with the kids. But occasionally, he has gone off by himself and given us a tug on the leash.

We have also tried holding the leash in front of him, but it never seems to work. He will take the leash and hold it in front of him, and then give us the "tug" once he is ready to get away.

For now, we are going to try to stick with the ignore/ignore approach. But I would like to get his leash trning back on track.

I would also like to suggest that you and your husband make sure your dog is getting as much exercise and exercise time as possible. It will help him to feel more comfortable in your home and in your neighborhood.

I have a 2-year-old Coton de Tulear/Maltese mix that we have been dealing with leash pulling since he was 8 months old. She was taken to the vet once, and they sd that she was fine physically and had no signs of pn. So they discontinued her pn meds. Now she is on pn meds for arthritis. She has a slight limp, but we had the vet give her the pn meds anyway. When we take her for walks, she always pulls on the leash.

I have tried all different approaches to teaching her. We hold the leash with treats right before we take her for a walk. Then she gets excited when she sees her treats and she wants to play with them. But when she comes home, she just keeps going into the yard to eat her food. She never wants to play with us or go for walks.

This has been going on for over two years. I have never seen such a stubborn dog.

I would like to suggest that you contact the vet that gave her the pn meds to ask what to do now. I would also suggest that you contact the vet that gave her the pn meds to ask for a pn control medication that will not have side effects. Many vets use Rimadyl or Deltasone.

I'm so sorry to hear about your puppy. I hope that they can get her back on her meds soon.

I would also suggest that you try different kinds of leashes. I used to use one made of nylon rope, and it was the best for trning my dog. But then we switched to a leather leash and I don't think it was as successful.

Maybe you should try a harness? I had to use that on our last puppy, and it worked great. I know that there is a problem with using a harness, as some people think that they make a dog feel like a leashed animal, but I was really happy with it.

The only advice I can give is to use a gentle leash and ignore the tug. My experience has been that once you stop paying attention, your dog will revert back to his former bad habit. When I first started, I was very lenient, so I would get tugged or pulled out, and I would immediately pull back. It was my intention to stop this, but I didn't. So I kept pulling back, and before I realized it, I was back to being lenient.

Good idea! I did this once, but I got frustrated and I pulled back even more, and he tugged even more.

I'm really glad to hear that your dog is on pn medication. It sounds like he is recovering well. You should definitely keep a close eye on him to make sure that he is getting the meds he needs.

As for leash trning, I am sorry that you have had such a difficult time with it. I have no experience with it, but I would try to find a trner that specializes in teaching dogs to walk and control their natural instinct to pull on the leash. You can search by using the terms: "leash trning" or "leash-pull
