  • It will take repetition in the area of stopping when your GSD pulls. It took me almost 20 min to walk 50 feet with a 100 DDB that insisted she was going to pull me home. It does work but it takes time and consistency. It is the first thing taught in KPT classes. If you are familiar with horses, it is the same thing and the same way to break them of barn souring (the urge to run home as soon as they see the barn in sight). Stay on top and you'll be fine. Good luck.
