What Happened?

First, let me explain a little more about what actually happens in your dog’s brain and body when he pulls on the leash.
There’s a physiological reaction that can occur in dogs which goes way back to their survival days in the wild called the fight or flight response.

It’s basically an acute stress response to danger. This causes your dog to release a whole load of chemicals into their bodies, such as cortisol, adrenaline, and noradrenaline, that flips them into an overdrive state where suddenly nothing else matters. They’re on a mission, ad the stress levels rise. All that training you’ve done to stop your dog from pulling on the leash goes out the window.

You might as well not be there. Sound familiar?

Now, back in the day, this rush of adrenaline was useful for the flight or fight response. However, walking past the corner coffee, it’s not useful anymore.

Yet many dogs are triggered into a bolting and pulling on a leash action when they see another dog or small animal running by. And when your dog’s triggered, these chemicals quickly start pumping around the dog’s bloodstream, and that makes it incredibly hard for him to calm down and listen to you.
