Leash Puppy Training A Great Training Tool

by Avrina Ware

Name: Call out your puppy's name enthusiastically: If he looks at you, praise him. If he ignores you, gently snap the leash, say "No," and then praise him once you have his attention.

Wait: Begin to command your puppy to stop 3 feet in front of you with this command. If your dog continues forward, gently snap the leash and say "No, Wait." Increase your distance to 6 feet, 8 feet, 12 feet, 16 feet, and 26 feet in front of you.

Sit-Stay: Use the Flexi-Lead to increase your distance control. Increase your distance incrementally.

Heel: Use this command to call your puppy back to your side. Call out his name and then command "Heel" as you slap your leg. Praise your puppy as he responds; then walk a short distance before you stop to release him.

No: Whenever he is focusing on something he should not be, gently snap the leash and say "No!" Immediately refocus his attention with a toy, stick, or command.

Positive dog training can happen any time, all the time. You don't need to get your dog ready in special training equipment. Your pet is usually ready whenever you are. It is recommended that you train in several 5 to 15-minute sessions, for a total of 30 to 45 minutes per day.

This is easier than it sounds. Every time you interact with your dog, you have a great opportunity to train him. By incorporating your practice sessions into your dog's daily routine, he learns that responding to your behavior cues earns him rewards, it's not just something he does when you have a leash in your hand.
