Select a suitable leash for your dog's size and strength. Opt for a comfortable and durable option to ensure a secure walk.
Ensure the collar or harness fits snugly but not too tight. Your dog should be comfortable and safe during walks.
Begin training indoors where your dog is comfortable. Attach the leash and let your dog get used to wearing it.
Reward your dog with treats and praise for walking nicely on the leash. Encourage good behavior with positivity.
Take your dog to a quiet, familiar location for practice walks. Gradually introduce distractions as your dog becomes more confident.
Learn how to address pulling, barking, or other undesirable behaviors during walks. Use gentle corrections and consistent training.
Celebrate your dog's progress, but remember that leash training takes time. Gradually increase the duration and complexity of walks.
