Teaching a dog to walk on a leash requires the right leash and collar or harness, along with time and patience. You also need to use verbal cues and positive reinforcement like praise, petting, and treats to help it learn good behavior.
Train indoors at first. Once your dog gets used to the leash, take your walks outdoors.
Pulling, lunging, and barking are common issues you’ll face on walks with your dog. Just remain calm and use a mix of cues and rewards to encourage better behavior.
