Today, Fi's professional dog trainer, Or Nessim, is teaching us the basics for allowing your dog to walk off leash. Not only does off leash walking allow your dog to explore and have freedom to roam, but establishes trust and communication between you and your dog.
A former dog handler in the Israeli Army, Or is focused on positive reinforcement. We chatted with Or on his experience, expertise, and the ins and outs of curbing excessive barking.
One of the most common issues dog owners encounter daily is being pulled by their dogs while on a leash. Ideally, your dog should be walking beside you with a loose leash - but it’s not as easy as it looks!
An issue many dog owners struggle with is having their dog engage with them or be enthusiastic to interact when treats are not present. It requires time, repetition, and dedication to achieve this.
How does a military trainer advise on curbing excessive barking? Should we even be training our dogs not to bark at all? Fi consulted with military k9 expert Or Nessim to find the answers.
