Not sure what you are seeing in your town, but here there is no question that more people are out walking their dogs these days. This is one of the few positives that have come out of the current situation - dogs getting to enjoy what for most of them is the highlight of their day.
My Dog Pulls - What Do I Do? by Turid Rugaas (leash pulling).
Now for a lot of you, walking the dog is a simple and enjoyable event. But for some folks, dog walks are stressful events - the dog pulls, wants to chase or barks at every other dog he sees or the dog plants his feet and won't move while investigating an interesting patch of ground (you Basset Hound owners know all about that!). If you encounter any of these kinds of problems, here is a list of books that can help.
