  1. This is very awesome! The young adults will get a lot out of this. I remember years ago when the officers of Fulton brought their canines to the Fulton Memorial Building and was demonstrating on how to walk our dogs the proper way. Always on the left leave a little slack of the leash hanging down if the dog gets out of control tap him and he will come to a halt. I went to this because at the time I had an alaskanmalamute and even though he was the runt of the liter he was stocky and very strong , yes I did have to use a choker collar on him but I always walked him on my left. Since then I have always remembered this and when I rescued a lab he had German Shepard in him also. I walked him on the left with the leash hanging down and he would feel the extended leash tap him and he would stop! Someone else trained him the same way, he had to be euthanized cause he ended up with hip dysphasia . Now I have a mixed terrier and I walk her the same way ,it’s not that easy with her. But she is 2 yrs.old I still have time to train her the same way. From Cindy Mulcahey
