Leash-Handling Isometrics™

Dog Behavior Seminar & Workshop Leash-Handling Isometrics ™ Leash handling utilizing principles of isometrics

Alana Stevenson has created a series of leash handling techniques that focus on proper body mechanics while utilizing the principles of isometrics. These techniques allow you to use the leash without resorting to yanking or pulling on your dog and prevents injury. Dogs have an oppositional reflex and any pull on your dog can cause him to pull more or become aggressive, reactive, shy, or shut down. Alana’s special Leash-Handling Isometrics™ techniques are illustrated and explained in her dog training book, The Right Way the First Time ©2007 and again, with a new series of pictures, in Training Your Dog the Humane Way ©2011. Alana Stevenson’s Leash-Handling Isometrics™, even if your dog is large or a strong puller, will markedly change your dog’s behavior.
