Safety tips for restraining, picking up and catching a dog – Dog training


Here are some safety dos and don'ts for Dog Sports and Trick Training focusing on restraining, picking up and catching dogs in the air. It's always a good idea when trying out a new technique or trick even if you have seen someone else doing it… or many people doing it… to ask yourself "Is this in my dog's best interest?", "Could this potentially be uncomfortable or dangerous for my dog's health?" If your answer is "I don't know"… It's best to find out first.


  1. That is so incredibly helpful! We don’t have the collar problem, as our dog only wears a harness when we go out. But he had hip surgery in 2016 and had to be carried up the stairs or put in the car because he couldn’t jump (or walk for months). When we first picked him up after surgery the vet told us to pick him up with a hand under his stomach (as you have shown not to do), so we wouldn’t need to touch his him. Dante (the dog) didn’t like that at all, after a week or two, we picked him up as you have showed to do right and he likes that much better – even after the surgery. But then the stitches were healed already. Thanks for showing all this little helpful things, they help us a lot to understand and communicate with the dog. He feels better with us now and not as insecure as he was, when he came from the shelter.

  3. Thank you for the tips. I admit to having pulled on my dog’s collar out of spur of the moment fear and desperation for restraint, but this will give me a new perspective to work from 🙂 I appreciate it.
