Great Article: Leash Training

I was doing research for a harness comparison for some students, and came across this article on Loose Leash Walking.

I'll still do a post about harness comparisons - I love the analogy that is described in the article: There is a reason sled dogs wear harnesses, it's easier to pull. I grew up in a sledding family, and we always used harnesses for our dogs, but there are fantastic harness products out there to help you walk your dog. More on that later -

Here is the article: Seattle Times Dog Walking Article.
