Who Takes The Lead On Your Walks?


Researchers are discovering that many personality traits of your dog can be revealed by simply observing who takes the lead on a walk:

“Dogs that consistently took the lead during group walks were more responsive to training, more controllable, older and more aggressive than the dogs that tended to follow, according to the study.

Dogs that led more often had higher dominance ranks in everyday situations. This was assessed by a dominance questionnaire filled out by the dogs’ owners.”

So the big question is – who is the leader on your walk?
