Three dogs and their ghost master in the woods. Walking in front of your dog allows you to be seen as the pack leader. Conversely, if your dog controls you on the walk, he’s the pack leader. You should be the first one out the door and the first one in. Your dog should be beside or behind you during the walk.
When you get home, don't stop leading. Have your dog wait patiently while you put away his leash or take off your shoes.
