How to Leash Train Your Puppy?

Show patience as your puppy adapts to the sensation of wearing a leash. Begin indoors, allowing them to explore the feel without external distractions.


The best technique is positive reinforcement. Reward your puppy with treats, praise, and affection when they walk calmly on the leash. 

Positive Reinforcement

Long sessions can lead to boredom or frustration. Short bursts of leash training, filled with positivity, keep your puppy engaged and excited for the next session.

Short Sessions

Introduce distractions gradually. Start in a quiet environment and slowly progress to busier areas. This helps your puppy build focus and obedience amid varying external stimuli.

Distractions Gradually

It's "heel," "let's go," or any chosen cue, be consistent with your language. This helps your puppy associate specific commands with desired behaviors.

Consistent Commands

Choose between a harness or collar based on your puppy's breed and behavior. Harnesses are often gentler for leash training. 

Harness or Collar Choice

Gradually transition from indoor to outdoor leash training. Start in a secure backyard before venturing into public spaces.
