Leash training a puppy is not only to train the puppy to walk nicely on a leash, but also you must teach him to walk on left side always. Puppy must also learn that he should not be distracted at any other things than you in walking sessions.
A significant task in training sessions is to voluntarily communicating with the puppy about the optimistic and negative behaviors. Remember your puppy is young and needs time to learn this etiquette in perfect manner. If you start the training sessions at this stage, it would be master in walking on a leash at his adultery stage. Then you may ripen the fruits of the walking sessions.
Some puppies may jump, roll and even bite you as if we are killing them with the collar and leash. But don’t be afraid it’s usual behavior, soon the puppy adopts to the outfits. Even human beings hate wearing ID tags, collar buttons in the neck, but circumstances make them adopt. In the same way your puppy will also learn to wear collars and leashes.
Easy task of training puppy:
Training a puppy is an easy go task but re-training an adult dog is such a fuss. So you are lucky enough to train your puppy at his early stage. Will you beat or scold your baby for not performing its task perfectly? Obviously no, this suits even to puppies. Be patient until they perform the task perfectly.
Respond to the behaviors of puppy whether it’s good or bad. If the puppy readily accepts the wearing of collar reward him a treat immediately. If you delay for this behavior and give him the treat after a minute as the puppy scratches or tries to get out of the collar, then your puppy might misunderstand. He thinks for scratching or nodding the head and removing the collar, you praise him. Hence be attentive in sessions to reward optimistic behaviors immediately.
Prior step in leash training is fixing the flat nylon collar or harness to the puppy and conditioning them to their outfits. As the puppy is brought to your home, fix the ID collar to them with two fingers gap. Watch them, whether they are making fuss on wearing collars. Leave them undisturbed for about 15-30 minutes. Then you may remove the collar, if the puppy does not get excited about removing that. If the excitement happens in puppy, leave him undisturbed, let him be with the collar.
After puppy feels comfortable with the leash permanently, clip the leash with collar. Let him drag and roam around the home. Be there to supervise him whether he entangles in furniture legs.
In the next session, hold the other end of a leash and tempt him with treat. Keep the treat in left hand, tempt him, then let him make the leash lose and come forward. Repeat these step two or three times.
In the next sessions, continue walking with the help of treats. After few sessions as the puppy obeys even your surprise commands, take him to explore the world.
