Teaching leash manners to your puppy can be a true challenge, because dogs move faster than us and are excited about exploring outdoors. Dogs have to be taught to walk nicely on leash, because they are not born knowing that they shouldn’t pull ahead or lag behind.

Murphy the young Golden Retriever, was a little worried about the long string that seemed to follow him as he moved. Suspicious, he watched his owner for a reaction. Then he continued to bark and back away from the strange long string!

Seeing a Golden Retriever act so distrustful of something is odd, but still very entertaining! They love to please everybody, so you will always see a Goldie jumping for joy at complete strangers. Terrible watch dogs, but excellent buddies!

Every pup needs to go through the process of learning to walk on a leash. It is a few-step process, the number of steps depending solely on your dog. Start by letting your dog get used to having something around its neck or chest. Let it wear them for short periods of time, in the house, during which you are playing with him and giving him treats. The puppy should love “collar and leash time” because it represents food and fun.

Make sure that you always use the same cheerful command for when the leash is coming out. It should be a happy moment for your puppy. Always make them come to you for the leash and reward them every time. When things are safe inside, then you are ready to take stuff outside.
