Got a new puppy and want to know proven tips and tricks that can help you with leash training? Here are some of the basic tips for better leash training.

The type of equipment depends upon the breed, size, and nature of your dog. A standard leash and collar would do well for most of the dogs, however, for dogs that are extra-large or have a sleek neck, you should first measure the neck and get the dog collar that is most suitable.
Be stiff as a board
While leash training it is pretty common that dogs may pull or tug. So, stop walking when the dog pulls on the leash. Stand stiff until the dog stops pulling and then start to walk again. Get a head halter and a leash for the dog that pulls if the bog pulls a lot.
Do not let the dog approach other dogs
Dogs usually get distracted quite easily and they might reach other dogs for friendship. However, some dogs that are under behavioral training are not that friendly. If a dog owner does not give permission, don’t get offended. Be optimistic, the dog may be under training or under-recovery from some illness.
