Taking your puppy out on a leash walk does not only train your pet; it also brings in health and social benefits for him. It is not just an exercise; it also serves as a way of teaching your dog to be obedient to you. He learns to explore new places and situations but does not become stubborn. But there is more to just dragging your pet when leash walking. There are things that you should take note when you bring your puppy out on a leash walk.

If it is your first time to walk your puppy to the park, make sure to stroll briskly. Do not let your puppy slow your pace. If your pet is dragging on his feet, do not wait for him. The trick is to walk faster, as if it was cold and raining. This will give your puppy the idea to keep on walking. This will also prevent your dog from straying or from looking at other people and objects that might catch his attention. If you keep your enthusiasm throughout your walk, your puppy will also feel the joy of the activity.

During moments when the puppy attempts to move in a different direction or stops suddenly, be patient. You may halt with your puppy and console him. Try to see if he is injured or if he needs to rest. If he heads off to a new direction where he is not allowed to go, then try to get back his attention and move on with your walk.

Your puppy, during this time, may also attempt to pull away from you. The best way to respond is to give him a gentle pop on the head using the leash. Avoid tugging or ripping your puppy, as it would cause him to jerk. Gently pop the leash into the direction where you should be walking. While doing this, you can also talk sweet words to your pet, like “come on, sweetie”, or “were you hurt”. Say these words while you are walking. This way, you are training your puppy to keep moving, and that every time he switches direction, he gets a pop on the head.

Sometimes, the leash can make your puppy feel exhausted. Try to adjust the tightness of the leash. Better yet, put more allowance or distance between your hands and your puppy’s neck. The shorter the distance, the more drag your puppy feels. After a successful leash walk, cheer your puppy, give him a hug, and reward him with his favorite food.
