Conditioning your dog to the leash and teaching him/ her what you are communicating. A little bit of work for a life tome of easy breezy walking. Your initial walks will not be leisurely strolls. Think of them as training, your focus will be 90% on your dog and 10% on what is coming up ahead. Keeping an eye on your dogs posture, ears, eyes, mouth, notice any changes in energy and where their focus lies to adjust yourself and communicate what is right and what is wrong to your dog.
