A dog is much more likely to hurt itself or others if out of control on leash. Pulling on the leash makes it harder to hold onto the dog, so dropping the leash is more likely. A dog who is untrained to walk on leash is more likely to become frustrated, which can lead to leash reactivity.
Behavior modification is a treatment approach for changing the undesirable behaviors that your dog exhibits. Behavior modification can address a broad range of issues and is designed to meet the specific needs of each dog and household.
