Working on starting your walk in the way you want it to continue is essential.
Merlin the Black German Shepherd really struggles with focus outside. He used to dive straight out of the car and drag his owner to the nearest patch of grass to sniff. Once he started that, it was really difficult to get focused again.
If there was a dog there when the door opened, he would be much more likely to react badly.
This is how she starts his walk.
