I just come back with my cross staffordshire from spending day in park festival. She is 1 year old and i have trained her to walk next to me with a "slowly" command and tapping my leg. She tends to obbey a lot better unleashed than otherwise but still today was a very hard all day pulling. If I was letting her loose she would walk away distracted by everything. She was very distracted by crowd and food/people eating. Now, today was a extream situation, there was loads of people around, but she does still do it. She is very friendly and approaches anyone. This is luky in some way (she is a sweetie), but it can be dangerous for her 'cos she might get lost, stolen, or run over by car. She hurted herself today from pulling so much and has come back with mark from the harness. Other times people react badly to her coming next to them (this is another issue, they have a problem, cos she doesn't jump on people just aproximates wagging her tail). I have to say that sometimes I feel she would go with anyone else, she doesn't demostrate an special attachment to me, why?. It is like I amnot her master but her carer, what it is not the end of the world, it hurts me but, it mostly worries me when she is not safe. I have heard of having them only called by their master, of "training collars" (this looks harsh to me), what can I do?
