If you can, avoid the first response that occurs to most humans, which is to stop moving, tighten up your dog’s leash and/or pull him close as the other guy passes. If you don’t stop the dogs from pulling you the opposite way, you’re going to have a bad time.
If you can’t get the dog to move, try to get him to look at you. If he doesn’t, then you’ve got a problem, and you need to figure out what’s going on.

Do harnesses keep dogs from pulling?
Anti-pull or no-pull dog harnesses can greatly reduce or even eliminate pulling behaviors. Harnesses are a great choice for dog walking because they take strain off your dog’s neck and offer you more control. No-pull dog harnesses are an excellent choice for canines who like to pull on leash. A pull dog leash is a leash that is attached to a harness.
The leash attaches to the harness so that the dog can pull the leash with his or her mouth. This is called a “pull” leash. A “no pull leash” is one that does not attach to any harness at all. In other words, it is not connected to anything in the way of a collar, harness, leash or leash chain.
If you have a dog who is pulling on your leash and you want to get rid of the pulling behavior, you can do so by removing the collar and leash from the animal. You can also remove the chain from your harness and attach it to another harness that you already have on hand.
Why does my dog always pull on the leash?
One of the most common reasons for dogs to pull on their lead is that they have learned how to move forward. When your dog pulls, taking just one step with them gives you a clear signal. It takes a lot of patience to teach your dog to walk with a loose lead, but it will pay off in the long run.
Why does my dog go crazy when he sees another dog?
Dogs that bark and lunge at other dogs are stressed out. They could be frightened, aggressive, or excited. Seeing another dog without being able to escape, attack, or go hi is upsetting, so the dog barks and lunges to get away from the other dog.
If you have a dog that is barking or lunging at you, you might want to talk to your dog’s owner to find out what’s going on. If the owner doesn’t seem to know what is wrong with their dog, they might need to see a veterinarian.
Why you shouldn’t use a dog harness?
Dog harnesses may require more physical strength than walking your dog on a traditional dog collar because of the size of the dog. Your dog may be able to wriggle out of a harness that is too big. Dog harnesses that are too tight can be hard to wear. If you are unsure, ask your veterinarian. Your veterinarian can help you find the right harness for your pet.
Do no pull collars work?
The short answer, yes! A no pull harness will limit pulling for a lot of dogs, making them easier to manage on walks. Most of the time, we want dogs that are easier to walk. The long answer is a bit more complicated, but it boils down to a few things. First, it’s important to understand that pulling is not the same thing as pushing.
Pulling is the act of pulling something, while pushing is pushing something away from you. In other words, if you want to pull something towards you, you have to push it away, and vice versa. This is why pulling a dog is so important, because it allows you to control the dog’s behavior.
If you can’t control their behavior, then you’re not going to be able to keep them on a leash or walk them in a way that is safe for them. It’s also why you need a harness. A harness is designed to limit the amount of force that can be applied to your dog, so that they don’t hurt themselves or other people around them, or cause injury to themselves and/or others.
Is a 20 minute walk enough for a dog?
Most dogs can tolerate 20-30 minute dog walks on a daily basis if they have a relatively good body condition. Some dogs can go hiking for hours at a time, if they are in great physical health. Dogs that are overweight or obese are more likely to suffer from arthritis, hip dysplasia, and other degenerative joint diseases.
They are also more prone to developing osteoarthritis in their hips, knees, or ankles. These diseases can lead to hip replacement surgery, which is expensive and can be very painful for the dog.
