Leinenpöbler – Strategies for relaxed walks

4 minutes

Many dog ​​owners know the problem: As soon as the dog meets other dogs on the leash, it begins to bark, pull or even become aggressive. Such behavior – also known as leash aggression – can make walks a stressful affair. In this article you will learn how you can deal with a dog that bullies on a leash and get the problem under control in the long term.

Understanding causes of leash bullying

Leash bullies exhibit behavior that can have various causes, such as fear, excitement, frustration or territoriality. A dog on a leash may feel restricted and therefore may react differently than without a leash.

Recognizing triggers and patterns

Watch your dog closely to recognize which situations trigger the bullying. Is the behavior towards all dogs or only certain types or sizes? Understanding these patterns is the first step to controlling behavior.

Promote impulse control training

Work on your dog's impulse control. Commands like "sit" or "stay" that get the dog to calm down and focus on you can help stop the bullying before it starts.

Use positive reinforcement

Use positive reinforcement to reward calm behavior on leash. Avoid reinforcing bullying behavior with attention or pulling on the leash. Instead, reward your dog when he stays calm or pays attention to you.

Apply training techniques

Avoid situations that trigger leash bullying while you're working on training. Give your dog enough space to feel safe around other dogs. Use training techniques such as crossing the street or maintaining a safe distance from other dogs.

Pay attention to body language and your own calm

Stay calm yourself and convey serenity, because dogs sense exactly how their owners are feeling. Avoid tightening the leash as this creates additional pressure and can make the behavior worse.

Consider professional help

If the problem is severe, consult a professional dog trainer or behavioral therapist. Sometimes the reasons for leash aggression are deep-rooted and require professional assessment and intervention.

Conclusion: Consistent training leads to improvement
