Training The Human For The Walk

I believe that the walk is the most important daily feature of our relationship with our dogs. It is not just about the physical exercise. It is also the best way to affirm your place as Pack Leader. Done right, it’s the perfect time to let go and really connect with your dog. It might seem like the most natural thing in the world to go walk with your dog — but it is surprising how many humans mess it up. And the reason is a very simple human problem: We think too much! Be in the moment When you

How To Fit The Dog Walk Into Your Daily Schedule

Walking your dogs is important for a variety of reasons: It provides them with much-needed exercise that keeps them healthy and relieves excess energy so they don’t cause problems around the house. It stimulates their brain because there are so many new smells, sights, and sounds to experience. It gives you a fantastic opportunity to train your dog and make sure that they recognize you as the Pack Leader. And, of course, it allows them to go to the bathroom. Despite all of these benefits, many people only walk their dogs intermittently — or not at all — because they

Regular daily walks are a crucial part of keeping your dog calm and balanced, so what do you do when you can’t keep your dog under control on the walk? Try Cesar’s new Pack Leader Collar! When used correctly, it can be an effective tool for restoring peace for both of you.

Dog Disinterested In The Walk

Dear Cesar, My dog is a 5-year-old dog, a lab terrier mix, and has always loved going to walks, but lately he seems disinterested in going. I’ve had to pull him out of the door to go for a walk and then he’ll sit down after we’ve gone one block and refuses to go another.
