Can any one tell me how to teach my dog traffic rules and to remove his obsessiveness.?

Hello friends, I have indian spitz dog. He is 1 1/2 years old. I have seen some people who walk their dogs without leash. Their dogs do nothing other than following them. They always walk on one side, never get deflected by any thing on road. On the other side, its my dog. He also follows me, stop on command but whenever he found other dog or cat, my whole training got crashed. In one such attempt he just missed an accident. Can any one tell me how to teach him traffic rules and to remove his obsessiveness. Anyone's valuable suggestions most welcomed.

Since your dog is well developed Adult, use a choke dollar first of all. Then use a small leash so he cant go away much distance from you. First you need to train this at home or in some private place so you can do the same thing in public. Also remember choke chain will sometimes get into dog's throat so you need to practice in such a way like if you pull 80% of the collar he should stop not 100% and his throat get affected. This will work for sure.

If not let me know.

hello suraj, i have a gsd. he is doing obedience training under a reputed trainer here in kolkata. he uses a choke collar and takes him to the local play ground for training, after almost a year of training, he is doing free leash walking but i still dont feel very comfortable to walk him off leash in busy streets however i put him off leash in the field and he walks fine. i think patience and regular practice is needed. u need to train him. dont just put him off leash in a busy street all of a sudden. first u need immense practice in a field then slowly introduce in a street but then also i wud say plz take help of a proffessional. otherwise it might be very dangerous.

Thanks for your reply, but mine is small indian spitz(lap dog). Is it right to use such harsh technique with him. Also he have soft coat, which make it difficult to use choke collar. I like your ideas very well but do we have any another soft techniques. Plz Plz

choke collar is not harsh. it teaches your dog discipline. so its good for them. and it doesnt matter if a dog is a lap dog or guard dog. all dogs are dogs and they need discipline. i have known many spitz who are very well known to the obedience show ring and are used to choke chains. ofcourse you will get a small choke chain for ur dog.

Firstly here if you wann get advice then we give it according to what we have adopted with our dogs. We dont give unless we tried it and get success from it.Also we dont give such a technique which will harm our dogs.So its upto you either you follow our steps or you follow some easy techniques which you keep searching for.

Dogs are animals either it is chihuaha or mastiff.dont think they are humans and needs the extra care like humans.If you give them their nature's gift and space they will be good pet for you otherwise they behave in a diff way.

First and foremost NEVER leave a dog off leash with the hope that s/he will behave like some well trained dog you have seen - even experienced trainers do not do it even though it will take only a couple of days to a couple of weeks to teach heeling for an experienced trainer, depending on the dog. In your case, if it is a small breed then just use a flat collar and leash about 6 feet long - tie it to your waist and walk around the house ignoring the dog as you go about your work - in a very short while, the dog's attention will start to focus on you to see which way you are moving. In addition carry some treats which the dog likes and when he comes to you treat and praise him and then once again ignore and go about your work without talking to your dog. Keep doing this for at least a week or two till you feel your dog's attention is fully on you. Next (without letting him off the leash) start to do this outside where there are more distractions like in a park etc. Start with less distractions and then slowly graduate to more intense ones. No matter how well trained, never allow a dog to be off-leash on roads and in traffic unless the dog knows to come INSTANTLY when called - of the dozens of dogs I have trained I have gone off-leash only with a handful of my personal dogs that I have trained fully and have been absolutely sure of being in total control even if they are at a distance like across the street.
