    Default He hates his leash

    Hi, My boy Scotch is now 3 months old. We made the mistake of not putting him on a leash when we got him a few weeks ago because we have a fenced in yard. Now whenever we put it on him for training or a walk he pouts and just sits and looks sad. Even his favorite treat will not get him moving. Anyone have any thoughts about getting him to adjust to a leash and going for a walk? Any help is great!

    so glad you found us! As far as the leash goes, I can give you advice I got from my sister, who trains dogs..put the leash on and just let him wlk all over with it dragging behind him..inside the house too. They get used to the feel and soon it will be better. A harness will be what you want to use permanently ...no pressure on the neck. Good luck and we love pictures!

    Good advice from @JAKEISGREAT. Make sure the leash is tough enough to be chewed on!

    That's great advice of above. I did the exact same thing with Wilson when he was younger. I would put the leash on him and just let him walk around with it. That's what the books that I had read said to do. He used to hate his walks up until about 10 months of age and then all of a sudden he just started loving them and now Sprints most of our walk. Just keep encouraging him and make it a positive thing every time. Start with baby steps when you walk him and it may only be 20 feet to make it fun.

    to EBN, Thomas. Scotch is no devil , that's for sure.. What a darling little guy. Personally I don't like collars. Bullies in general and puppies more specifically are so stubborn and strong that it takes some training like @JAKEISGREAT said. But, How do you plan to control him? With something (a collar) around his NECK??? I don't think so... a harness is so much better for the bully. In a perfect world you wouldn't need anything but why strangle the poor baby... Glad you joined EBN and hope you join right in. More pix of Scotch , Please.
