They just pull me in all directions sniffing everything in sight. I wonder how other people get their dogs to walk nicely?
I walked them just a few minutes ago and I almost fell, slipped in water and got really angry so I had to bring them back home again. I figure taking them out and giving them a chance for a walk and bringing them home each time they start to pull, should show them, right?
Am I mean to wish these dogs would just get a new home?

You might want to watch a few clips of the Dog Whisperer......from the national geographic channel.Or Dog towns clips at www.hulu.com ( My fave site! )
Getting them used to the leash and not pulling are the biggest complaints when walking.
You'd have to try this one dog at a time. But get small treats...and while they are on the leash, have them sit. reward them and say the good boy/ good girl! Then stay......and when you walk...have the same technique. Walk with them and soon as they PULL.. say" ____ Sit." Good boy/girl!!!!!! And reward them.
Soon they wont be pulling as much ( I HOPE) but thats about how they get them used to it. On the clips from the show DOG TOWN....they used positive reinforcement on a few like that to stop them from pulling...when walking.....GOOD LUCK!
