Positive reinforcement training is highly effective, works on all animals and is fun to do. When used for loose leash walking, it can require a bit of coordination and you have to be careful to avoid the dine and dash dynamic in which the dog comes to the side and gets a treat and then takes off to the end of the leash again. Training only works if it is done correctly. You may want to consult with a professional trainer for leash training.
