January is National Walk Your Dog Month, so we thought it would be a great opportunity to talk about loose leash walking. A basic, but sometimes elusive behavior.


We love being on the go with our dogs at all times, but some owners encounter a frustrating problem with pulling. So as much as we want our best friend to go everywhere with us, sometimes they simply don’t because we also value our arm remaining in it’s socket.
