How to Train a Puppy to be Still While Putting on His Leash

This video covers how to train a puppy to be still while putting on his leash (lead).  This process is a little different than dealing with an adult dog and is focused on helping the puppy to get used to you fiddling with his collar. This training session uses treats to reinforce the good behavior.  The trainer says that if the puppy is bouncing all over and not paying attention to your directions, then simply put the leach back and go sit down.  This will be a clear indication to the puppy that his behavior is not going to help him get out the door with you.

Stick to your guns with this exercise and be sure that your puppy really understands what is expected of him as you attach the lead (leash) to his collar.  It can be tough to learn how to train a puppy to be still while putting on his leash, especially when they are so small and the leash may be loose and move about quite a bit.  This can create an interesting feeling for the puppy as he is not quite sure what it is you are trying to do.  But with some practice, he will soon understand that his patience will be rewarded by having a good walk with you.

This training exercise seems pretty straight forward and simple, yet it may be something that new dog owners might overlook.  We hope that you liked the video and are able to use it with your puppy to get the desired behavior.
