    Hi there
    Just introducing myself. Looking for some tips for a very boisterous little black lab, particularly walking on lead, pulling on lead and desperately trying to lick everyone! Beautiful, sweet natured girl, but she doesn't stop! Any tips would be very appreciated :)

    Hi Kirby and your family, welcome to the forum :)

    We've got a detailed article about teaching loose leash habits on our main site - you can read it here :)

    This article about jumping up might also be helpful. In the second half Pippa describes a training method for stopping dogs jumping up - it actually works by making it more rewarding for the dog to stop before they're close enough to touch someone they're approaching. So it could work to stop Kirby rushing to lick people too.

    Good luck, let us know how you get on!
