How do small dogs ride bikes?

Work your way up as slowly as needed until your dog will walk leisurely beside you on a leash while you walk your bike. Reward the dog for being calm and keeping its attention on you. Then, start riding the bike slowly while holding your dog's leash. Begin with about 10 minutes at a slow to moderate pace.

What to put on leash to stop biting?

Make sure all walking-without-biting gets rewarded. You can use treats, but you might have better results using a tug toy. Because a reward can be whatever the dog wants in that moment. When your pup grabs the leash, he's telling you what he wants: to play tug!

Why does my dog jump up at me when walking?

The most common reason why your dog could jump on you while walking is to get your attention. It might be because they want to play, they're anxious, frustrated, overstimulated, and were previously rewarded by you for jumping. Jumping also shows a lack of training typically stemming from puppyhood.

Why does my dog keep jumping at me?

He is looking for emotional and physical contact, and particularly if you have a dog that is sensitive to touch (retrievers and many toy dogs are), any physical contact is rewarding for your dog. Attention, even negative attention, reinforces this jumping behavior, and that includes raising your voice to reprimand him.
