Lead/leash training

Lead Training can start as soon as the puppy has settled into his new environment. Here are some suggestions:

  • Put his collar and leash on while someone else mixes his food. Hold him on the far side of the room and when his food is placed on the floor, lead him to it and keep it on while he eats.
  • When one of the family member is due home, put his collar and leash on and hold him away from the entrance, when the family member arrives, lead the puppy over to greet them. Soon enough he will become accustomed to the strange feel of a leash.
