Accidental leash training
Yesterday while moving Smash's tether from the porch to the barn so he could be with me while I was working, he got an accidental but effective lesson on walking on a leash.
Instead of using his leash to walk him to the barn like I normally do, I just left his tether connected and let him drag it along.
The tether is made of steel cable so it is a lot heavier than his regular leash. So it drags on the ground between his legs.
When he made a lunge after something he thought needed sniffing, the cable popped up and slapped his tender dangly bits.
He has not pulled on the leash since.
