Leash Training Puppies - The Right Way!


Visitors: 209

Leash training puppies can be challenging but is something that needs to be learned early on. Walking your dog on a leash will be something that you'll probably do on a daily basis so making sure your puppy learns the correct way to do it is very important.

If this training is overlooked in the early months, it will be like teaching “an old dog new tricks" later on. And that's not a very easy thing to do. Leash training puppies is probably equally as important as house training them. And that's because if they learn the wrong way it will be nearly impossible to retrain them.

Puppies are very smart and they can begin to be leash trained as soon as they arrive in their new home. The key is to be consistent with them so they are not confused.

If you can find a professional dog trainer or even a book that will show the correct techniques, you'll save yourself a lot of headaches in the long run. A puppy that has been taught correctly will be a joy to take a walk with. They will:

Not pull on the leash
Will not need a harness
Walk politely beside you
Will not pull away to greet other dogs and people
Will not duck out of a collar

So why not make life a whole lot easier for you and your new puppy and make sure they learn it early and learn it the correct way. Then you'll both enjoy taking long walks together!
