In this section, we will delve into the intricacies of food handling for dog training. You’ll learn the best practices for using treats as incentives, from the ideal treat size for easy consumption to the safest way to hold treats to prevent accidental nipping.

Food luring is a positive reinforcement technique that involves guiding your dog to perform a desired behavior using a treat as a lure. This video guide provides a step-by-step description of how to use this technique for leash training effectively. We cover the nuances of body language and movement to help your dog understand exactly what you’re asking of them.
Proper leash handling is key to a comfortable and controlled walking experience. Here, we are going to go over the essentials of managing the leash with confidence, including how to adjust the leash length for different training scenarios and the importance of a relaxed grip to prevent transmitting tension to your dog. You’ll also discover how to respond to—and correct—pulling without a confrontation.
Merging leash handling with food luring techniques can significantly enhance your training effectiveness. Here, we will explain how to synchronize your leash cues with treat rewards to guide your dog’s movements and reinforce good behavior. This combination approach helps to keep your dog’s attention on you, even in distracting environments.
The 180-turn drill is a proactive way to redirect your dog’s attention back to you if they begin to pull on the leash. This section describes the mechanics of the drill, including how to execute a smooth turn and the timing of rewards to encourage your dog to stay aligned with your walking pace.
Teaching your dog to navigate left-hand turns requires patience and practice.
