Grace is a 14 week old Poodle Shih Tzu mix

Grace is a very cute young puppy. On her first day she was a little bit unsure in her new environment – a new place, new people, and different dogs. Now, after a few visits she is doing very well.

Grace is playing with other dogs, and has learnt the sit-stay, down-stay and come commands.

Grace learning the Down command

We are now practicing walking on a leash with Grace.

Follow the following steps to teach your dog to walk on a leash:

  1. Begin by using a happy voice to say “lets go” or some other phrase you like.
  2. Start walking. Pat your leg and show a treat to encourage puppy to follow you.
  3. If your puppy starts to wander away and tightens the leash, say “easy”.  Then turn and walk in a direction away from the puppy. Don’t jerk on the leash. That will happen automatically if the puppy doesn’t pay attention. Don’t slow down and wait for the puppy.  It’s the puppy’s responsibility to keep that leash slack.
