Hello everyone! Happy Holidays! We have an almost 5 month old Berner girl who is just a happy sweet little puppy, we love her! She goes out for walks daily and has been doing pretty good with the loose leash walking (I stop when she starts to pull and continue our walks when her focus is back on me) seems to work most of the time. Lately some walks have been starting to go horrible! She'll grab the leash and start trying to play tug of war and pull me in the opposite direction, this leads me to hold the leash up higher - and naturally she jumps for it. Situation just turns into a nasty one with a crazy jumping nippy puppy. And she has calmed down quite a bit with the puppy nipping, except when she does this during the walks. She knows the drop it command (if I have a treat) seems to work but the second she gets that treat, she grabs the leash again, so I'm trying to avoid doing that, as I don't want to reinforce it. Anyone have any techniques that have worked for them regarding this? Or is this just another puppy phase that will pass? I enjoy my calm walks! Thanks!
