Dog looking toward trainer walking by side
Dog sitting on left side of trainer Note: See how the dog keeps his eyes on the trainer as he walks. It is important for your dog to make eye contact with you throughout a training session. Encourage this behavior by saying its name followed by the command "on me" . Reward your dog with a treat for looking at you.

Also notice how the leash is loose, not tight where the dog is pulling. If your dog pulls, just stop and do not walk until he loosens the lead. It may take a while to walk any distance, however, your dog will soon learn that it cannot drag you.
