The First Step Leash Training Your

The majority of dogs readily accept the leash. Some, especially puppies, need a little time to get used to it. If your dog hasn't already been leash trained, you need to do it now.

Attach his six-foot leash to the dead ring of his training collar (see Chapter 6), and let him drag it around. You need to supervise him so that he doesn't get tangled up. Do this over a period of a few days. After he ignores the leash, pick up the other end and follow him around. He'll happily wander off wherever his fancy takes him.

You're now ready to show him where you want him to go. First, use a treat to entice him to follow you, and then gently guide him with the leash, telling him what a good puppy he is. If you're teaching him outside, use the treat to coax him away from the house, and use the leash to guide him back toward the house. Before you know it, he'll not only walk on the leash in your direction, but he'll actually pull you along. See Chapter 8 for teaching your dog not to pull.

Puppies are sometimes reluctant to go away from the house, even for a treat. In that case, pick up your puppy, carry him away from the house, put him down, and he'll lead you back to the house. (Chapter 8 gives you even more information on leash training and more advanced techniques you can try.)
