Quick Tips for Leash Training Your Puppy

Leash training your puppy will make walks more enjoyable and safer for both of you. Your veterinarian can offer some great advice for making leash training easier. This video will also help.

Start by getting your puppy used to wearing a collar and leash by allowing him or her to wear it around the house. While you walk, make sure you allow enough slack. Practicing in an enclosed space, like your back yard, will prepare you for walking on the street. Use treats for encouragement when your puppy does the right thing.
