The best thing I ever did to improve my dogs loose leash walking is to teach him heel and sit off lead. Of course start In The house ! I begin by taking a step away from him and then luring to my left side in a sit and then say "heel" and c/t. Repeat repeat repeat. Then start taking a few steps away from your dog, standing sideways to them, facing them, etc. still luring them into new positions, but fading the lure in ones that have clicked.

Once this is mastered I call him to heel but keep walking a couple steps. When walking I only treat when I get eye contact. I'm the beginning I will have him stop and sit ever few steps. I do lots of direction changes and give lots of treats ! Always make sure to end on a good note with your pup wanting more !

I have found that off lead control makes the leash less important and keeps the dogs focus on you.
