In this video:
Lily and Tamryn demonstrate how to use your legs and your feet (not your arms) to slow your dog down.

Slowing your dog

To avoid the yo-yo (you and your dog pulling on each other). Your feet and legs – your lower body – is often much more powerful than your upper body, particularly for females.

When your dog is going to fast and you want to slow them or stop them: 

• Hold the leash steady in your hands

• Begin taking smaller slower steps

• Anchor your feet to the ground as you bend into your knees

• Continue slowing your steps, with feet firmly planting into the ground

• Bring your dog to a slower speed or a stop

→ Think of water skiing

→ Think of an anchor creating friction on the lake bottom
