My Mango also gets too excited when training outside
. She's great with tricks indoors but gets too distracted outdoors. She isn't very good in loose-leash walking. She would lunge forward then i would call her back and when she is back at my side she gets treats then lunges forward again. She is like a yo-yo. Sometimes she wouldn't even eat the treats... the outside is way too distracting.
I'm against the use of choke collars, shock collars, or anything that would cause any discomfort to my pup. I use a harness.
Ooh yah! I found out that when she's tired, she concentrates on training better. But she's not tired during walks; she's tired after walks...
