Harley has a thing about pulling on leashes well Mia's mainly, it was bath time yesterday so i had to put their collars & leashes on(i use choke chains just for this as the dog washer can clip them to the side of the bath) anyway i put Mia's on her & Harley grabbed it and pulled so hard that he nearly choked Mia, but she got her revenge. He then grabbed his own & was playing tug of war with me. How can i stop him doing this?

Does he also try and pull on the leads when you are walking them?

Yes the dog washer is a person, she has a mobile dog washing van but she works like a machine lol. Yes he does pull on & try to chew through the leashes on walks.

Have you thought about using chain leads?

we get this alot at the rescue centre, it's generally just over excitement at the prospect of a walk.

All I generally do is stop to excitement so the dog gets bored fast and lets go. It's only fun if there is a reaction. If you start trying to pull the lead out of the dogs mouth you are only participating in a game of tug or war...exactly what the dogs wants, a exciting game!

All I do is hold the lead as close to his mouth as possible and also hold his coller so he can't wriggle about. Once you hold him still for a little bit he'll calm down and get bored of this failed play attempt, then you can ease the lead out and start again.

To prevent it completely you have to take all the excitement out of putting leads on and leaving the house.

Thanks for the advice i will try it i just wish he wouldn't do it to Mia as i know what she's like and he wouldn't do it when i am trying to put it on them.

It's my fault as i don't walk them as much as i should as i have some back problems & can't walk far or for long distances so by the time i get out the gate i'm in loads of pain & can't take anything for it so it's either crawl with the dogs or end up in a wheel chair.

I don't use chain leads but i do use choke chains for their bath collars but that's it i have regular collars & leashes for them, plus an extendable lead for walks.
