How to train a dog to walk with a leash?
My puppy is 3 months old and a German Shephard/Alaskan Malamute(sp?) mix. He is afraid of the leash and every time I try to put it on him, he howls and yelps like he is being killed or tortured and fights it with all his might. Once I get it on, he fights it SO hard that he chokes himself and he refuses to even try to let me lead him around with it or anything. How can I get him to stop being afraid of it and start to teach him how to be led properly?
I have two chocolate labs. When they were puppies all they wanted to do was play. They hated the leash. They did not mind their collars. So I saw on PBS a dog training special. The trainer said tie a string around the collar so it hangs. This way they get used something hanging off of their collar. I did it and it worked. Then I took them out for a walk. They pulled the whole way. The vet said get a choke chain. Put it on so it looks like a P(so it will tighten and release right away) not a 9 or a b(if put on this way the will not release when pulled). If they act up pull the leash it will tighten and release give the dog the command you want for me it was walk. Part of the problem is the dogs are excited about being in unfamiliar territory. Once they got used to walking up the street and the combination of the collar they calmed down. Then you don’t need the choke collar anymore. I didn’t want to use it but the vet said it was OK. I didn’t have to use it long at all. Then we went back to a regular leash. Now they go get their leash and bring it to me when it is time for their walk. They really know what time to get the leash. Just be patient.
How do you train a dog on how to walk with a leash?
My dog had a puppy and I recently got it a cute little collar, but today as I was trying to take it for a walk it refused to move it sat down and pulled it’s body back as I was trying to pull it forward. My dog Bubbles who gave birth to the puppy was already trained on how to walk with a leash when I got her so I don’t really know how to teach my puppy how to walk with a leash. Any help? Instructions? Websites? Anything that can help!
When my grandma got two puppies she went to a training course at petsmart and she was told to hold treats in her hand and hold them at your side making sure the dog can see them. Keep getting them excited by saying “let’s go” in an energized voice every minute or two. Keep giving them a treat when you say that and do not let them get in front of you. Say “AH” if they do in a strong voice and let them know they are not allowed to do that.
How do I train a dog to walk on a leash?
She has no problem with the collar or the leash. The problem is she is a hound puppy and big. She is strong and almost drags me so I have a hard time controling her. She mostly takes off when she gets a scent and I want to teach her when I am walking her to stay with me and not just bound off drag me behind?
Thanks everyone. The dog is a puppy but pretty big:
As a 5 foot 3, 15 year old girl, it can sometimes be hard to handle.
Don’t let her pull. As soon as she pulls, you stop. Make her walk nicely by your side. Don’t walk forward until she puts slack on the leash. A harness might be good so you don’t injure her neck, if she’s a dog that pulls until she chokes.
