    Default Loose lead walking with three newfies

    I went to the NSW newfie day, and I forgot my camera, someone there on the day sent me this picture of us arriving at the event with L>R Lukey, Katy and Annabelle (as always at heel).

    They are a great threesome to walk........never pull and just happy

    There were about 16 newfies and four other breeds of dogs there, we had to stay on lead, keep the dogs out of the bushes/high grass, because we were in a tick are and mine are not treated for ticks as we do not have ticks where we live. And the local vet said they were so bad even treated dogs get them. But they had a lovely time in the river off lead

    We had a great day.....Tessa was with hubby

    They look awesome. Plodding along, with not a care in the world.
    All those smells and mine would be hyper on arrival.

    Annabelle and Lukey both towed like trucks when we got them as Rescue adults.......Now they are all on flat collars or martingales

    Each and every one is trained as "stand alone".......And the biggest was pure Clicker training ( from puppy), The smallest was done with some aversion training, as she was really aggressive and number three was a bit of both, mostly with lots of positive reinforcement.........They all only wear martingale collars and only the smallest wore a check-chain when we started her. We cannot use flat collars as they have to be worn too tight (so they dont go over the ears if they ever pull back in panic mode, as once happened when a brass band started) and it damages their coat, so loosish martingale collars it is. And lots of training with proofing everywhere

    Ooh, I must look into those martingale collars. Banjo has a small head and a thick neck, so her collar is often slipping over her head when I try to grab her and she pulls away.

    Another thing to spend money on: I just found beautiful custom made ones on Etsy! Sorry to hijack your thread, but do you think the ones with a chain bit are considerably better than the ones all made out of material? Logic tells me they would operate more smoothly, so less risk of the collar feeling tight when it is not pulled?
