Is it ok to walk your dog on a loose leash but ahead of you if she isn’t pulling?

Is it ok to walk ur dog on a loose leash but ahead of you if she isn’t pulling?

Summary: In a conversation, Sneha Bhattacharya asked if it's okay to walk a dog on a loose leash ahead of the owner, provided the dog isn't pulling. Sunny Luthra responded by stating that while that's okay, it's recommended to follow a structured approach during walks to improve the dog's focus and the relationship between dog and owner. These instructions include creating a walk schedule, starting the walk calmly, keeping the dog on a short leash and ensuring the dog follows you, breaking the walk into sets, and teaching the dog to sit at specific timings/locations.

  1. Yes but it is always recommended to follow a structure during the walk which improves dog’s focus and your relationship.

  2. You brisk walk with your dog following a structure(This is a mental and physical exercise which should be practiced everyday)
    1. Create a schedule for the walk
    2. Start the walk with calmness
    3. Take your dog to the gate, ask her to sit and then open the gate.
    4. Take your dog on short leash out from the house following you.
    5. Do the same thing entering in the lift, going out of the life and so on.
    6. During the walk divide the whole walk in 2-3 sets
    7. For example if your walk is 45 mins, then walk briskly for 15 mins or so and then give a break for 5 mins to the dog at a safe place, then start again for 15 mins and then give break
    8. During the whole walk dog is walking beside your or behind you. (It deepens the bond, make dogs more calm and confident)
    9. while going back follow the same thing asking your dog to sit then enter the life, and then enter the house.
    10. Ask your dog to sit again at home, and then unleash..
    11. Feel happy.
