Living better with dogs – management techniques, part 1: tethering

Originally Featured on If you spend any time at all with dog trainers, you will hear us talk a lot about management. There are a lot of ways to manage your dog and help prevent bad behavior. In this post, I am going to discuss tethering. Tethering is one of my favorite forms of management. All you need is a leash and a heavy piece of furniture or a door. To tether, take the handle of the leash and loop it under the leg of your chosen piece of heavy furniture (make sure the furniture piece you choose cannot fall on top of your dog, doesn’t have a bunch of objects that can fall on your dog, and won’t move if your dog pulls on it). Then you attached the clip to your dog’s collar.
