At Side By Side Dog Training, this is how we work with dogs to learn polite leash walking.

“Training doesn’t limit a dog. Training frees a dog. My dog, being trained, is free – free to walk with me, free to ride with me, free to play off-leash with other dogs, free to learn and run. An untrained dog is “free” to sit in the backyard where he can get into as little trouble as possible.”
~ Sue Ailsby
