OMG I'm so upset with her!!

Just got back from a terrible walk with Liberty. She was walking great. We are trying to train her to walk without the Gentle Leader. Things were coming along slowly. I clicker train her and give her treats. If she starts to pull I either stop and have her sit or I just turn around and go the other way. Well on tonights walk, she was doing quite well until we were about 1/2 block from home. IT is quite windy here tonight and a rolled up bag was rolling down the street, then it would roll back then roll forward. Well she wanted to chase it. She nearly pulled my darn arm off. She would not listen to "sit" or "no" or anything. I tried pulling her back in the other direction and I could barely pull her she was so determined to get to this bag. It was so frustrating and now my whole arm is sore. So frustrating!!!

I feel your pain. Bentley does the same thing all of a sudden it's like he forgot how to walk on a leash. He may be only 54 lbs but when he pulls it feels like Ky!
I'm now calling our walks "stops" because that's mostly what we do

Kudos for taking off the gentle leader.....I'm still leaning heavily on the Halti.. but at some point I have to transition also and I'm not looking forward to it. in your case it sounds like the first 80 percent of the walk went great....from where I stand that sounds like a huge success! maybe tomorrow you'll get 85 percent! either way you're inspiring me to try it also .....

Molly walks on a loose lead but will still lunge at things like squirrels. She won't continue to pull when she reaches the end of her leash, but the lunge alone takes me by surprise.. I just hope she will grow out of it and not pull my arm out of its socket for a squirrel..

I love the signature. I usually use the iPad app so I don't see those unless I open in Safari...
Maybe when I retire I'll have more time to do stuff like that

When I was teaching Cookie to walk nicely, I used a leash attached to a belt around my waist. I made mine, but I've also seen them online. I like to have about 3 feet between me and the dog, any longer and they get their feet caught up in the leash. The advantages to this approach are that there is no give, there is no temptation to yank the leash, and you have both hands free to keep warm in your pockets or better yet, manage a clicker and treats.

Cooper loves run-away trash too . Sorry you almost got your arm pulled off....but it sounds like Libbie is making good progress. The bag was just too much of a distraction for her. You will have to yell at mother nature for that one .

Remember that MOST of the walk went very well. She only lost it at the very end.
