Dear Paws: I’m trying to train my six-month-old Lab, “Pepper,” to be well-behaved on our walks around the neighborhood, especially when she meets other dogs. She’s very excited and tugs at her leash and barks; many of the other dogs do the same, but they’re not always friendly – there’s a lot of growling sometimes.
I’ve tried to work in obedience training with my puppy, “Spaetzle,” during her morning and evening walks, because I read somewhere that this is the most efficient way to do it. But she doesn’t seem to pay attention and I feel like we’re not getting very far. Am I doing something wrong?
