The other thing that really helped me was to us one of those long training leads – Claire, what are they really called?? Not so he can be a long way away, but one that you can loop round your shoulder and clip back on itself – leaves both hands free. Found that enormously helpful. You will find that your tension kinda goes away a bit if you aren’t gripping on a lead at all. plus it leaves one hand for clicker and one for treats.
not sure i would have a lead looped round my body with a dog that lunged :-\ he could seriously hurt laura if he lunged and pulled her over.
keep up the good work laura you will get it eventually 😉
