Re: Fighting each other on the walk

I normally use a Halti on Scamp whilst Sooty has a slip lead.  She put a collar on scamp (not a check chain) it was like the slip lead but it fits around the neck under the ears (like the halti) which is the part of the neck the mother dog uses to correct puppies and does not choke them like a check chain or choke coller.  Each time Scamp went after Sooty she reacted quick by pulling the lead quickly to the side which caused the collar to tighten slightly then slacken but unlike aforementioned it did not cause Scamp to choke in anyway it just gave him a ‘start’ as it applied pressure again like the Mother dog would do I suppose.  She also used positive verbal commands like NO and he just sat down and looked rather sheepish.  She then carried on with the walk.  Each time he looked as if he was going to start a fight she again used a quick jerk of the lead and a very positive No  which was enough to stop him.  As soon as he was walking without confrontation she would praise him with soft words of Good boy etc.  She has recommended clicker training as well which we will learn at the classes.  Honestly Scamp was a different dog, even in that short time.  He did not show any signs of fear with her infact when we got back his tail was wagging.
