Question by Joe S: How do I train my Jack Russell to walk on the lead properly?
I have a Jack Russell Terrier who is now two years old. He is very excitable but generally behaves himself! It took us a good year to get him toilet trained and although he will sit, lie, roll over etc when we give him treats, he is otherwise not in the least bit interested.
There is no way we can let him off the lead as he just bolts for it, but when it comes to taking him for a walk on the lead, he can really act up. He will tend to get very excitable, jump up and down, try and grab the lead in his mouth to pull us along (I know this is a gesture of dominence but no amount of chastising seems to make any difference!) and will pull so hard he literally chokes himself (coughing and wheezing because of the collar pulling him) but he just continues to pull. Recently we bought him a harness to use but it hasn’t made a massive amount of difference.
