Last week we spent some time with the German Shepherds again in Limassol at GSDRC. There are many Shepherds there in need of training and stimulation.
We try to focus on proper leash walking since it’s an important part of their life in a new home and we need to teach them how to walk properly when walked by their new owners.
PetSpot’s dog trainer worked with a sweet boy named Rex. Rex had no prior leash manners and was totally running the show the second he left the kennel. We started by making sure we were walking along a wall where he had no other choice but to walk either ahead, behind or right next to us. We then added a lure in the form of a treat to get him walking nicely by our leg. Slowly we introduced switching directions and before we finished the session we could let go of the leash and he’d stay right next to us. Training German Shepherds is truly amazing, fun & rewarding.
PetSpot offers dog training services in Paphos, Polis and Limassol and we aim to help as many GSD find a home by offering our services and help to German Shepherd Rescue Center in Limassol.
