How did dogs develop the bad habit of refusing to tie a leash?

The traction rope is like a car seat belt, which is a safety guarantee for taking a dog out for a walk and also a prerequisite for taking a dog out for a walk. But many owners always face difficulties when tying a leash to their dog, and in the end, they admit defeat and let the dog go out without tying the leash.

Before the age of about 4 months, dogs always like to be with their owners, just like following their own mothers, because they are only recently out of their lair. Therefore, many owners may not tie a leash to their dog because they feel it is unnecessary.

After the dog is 4-5 months old, it begins to become disobedient. When they go out, they just run around and no longer surround their owner. The owner thinks it is necessary to tie a leash to the dog, so they hold a collar and want to put it around the dog’s neck, while the dog runs away when they see the collar.

You should know that before the age of 3-4 months, dogs are generally more daring and curious about anything. They dare to touch anything unfamiliar. Through exploration, they gradually acquire the concepts of safety and danger. As they age, their curiosity begins to decline because they have realized the necessary conditions for survival, and the appearance of unfamiliar things often indicates danger, let alone the collar that needs to be placed around the crucial part of their neck.

At this moment, the dog thought, ‘What is this? I’ve never seen it before. Would it hurt me? I’d better be careful, get out of my way first!’!

The owner was a bit angry when he saw the dog running away, so he shouted loudly and chased after him with a collar. Finally, the dog was caught in the corner, and the owner quickly put on a collar and tied the leash.

During this process, the dog thought, “Oh my goodness, the owner came to grab me with this thing and shouted angrily. This must be a terrible thing.

The owner finally tied a leash to the dog and took it out for a walk. On the lawn, the owner released the traction rope and let it move freely for a while, then walked towards it with the traction rope, wanting to take it home. The dog saw this terrifying thing coming again and quickly ran away. Because it’s outdoors, it’s even harder to catch up with a four legged dog. It wasn’t until the owner ran out of breath that he caught the dog. The infuriated owner tied a leash to the dog, hit it hard a few times, and immediately took it home.

Now the dog looks at the leash like this: “This is really a bad thing. As soon as the owner put it on me, he will hit me and won’t let me play anymore

So, in the future, as soon as the owner takes out the leash, the dog immediately finds a way to escape. Because it has realized that ‘traction rope=bad things begin’. The bad habit of refusing to tie the traction rope was thus “trained” by the owner.
