Default Don't let your dogs walk in front of you, says Cesar

Milan: POTUS needs to train Bo - Yahoo! News

You know, that's always been a point of contention with me. I've always had dogs who guarded, and you know what? It's their instinctive DUTY to go in ahead of me to check things out, to look around dark corners, to be where they can get between me and anything they consider a threat. It's what they DO, and trying to break that natural behavior seems like a really good way to create an anxious dog rather than a calm, confident one. I just seems like common sense to me.

Cesar's a numbnutz.

Heh my dogs aren't guardian dogs and they walk in front of me all the time. That's just how it works generally when you walk a dog. How fun would it be to drag the dog behind you?

It seems stupid and pointless to me to force the dog to heel and walk perfectly beside me on a walk that is for them to get out and about. If they want to go ahead and sniff then they can.

Heck, 90% of our walks aren't on leash so they're usually anywhere from 20 yards ahead of me to 20 yards behind me.

Does it make any sense if your dog walks or not in front of you? What it has got to do with it? I don't get any relation to that. I dont get the point. Honestly!

I prefer that my dogs walk in front of me. That way he/she isn't veering into me or vice versa. And I can also see what is going on ahead of me and have time to react accordingly.

As it is, I'm always pushing a jogging stroller and whichever dog I'm walking is always walking right beside the stroller.

Guess I'm just weak and subservient.
