Dog walking 101 is simple surely? Well, there are many things that new dog owners might not know when it comes to walking their pets. We’ve put together 10 of the top dog walking tips that we think everyone should know.

1. Get a Front Clip Harness

One of the main issues that new dog owners face is how to walk a dog that pulls on the leash. While training and practice are essential, the type of leash you have is also very important. Many dogs react poorly when they are tugged back, and their instinct is to pull even more. Therefore, a front clip harness and leash is recommended. It pulls your dog from the front and your dog won’t fight against it. Using this along with one of the many comfortable clip harnesses on the market is the best combo for dog walking.
