Loose Leash Walking and Focus
 
I have started obedience class with my 4 month old. I don't have high expectations when it comes to training right now because of his age. However, I was curious about hearing how people solved their walking problems. When I take Hugo on walks, I do the usual stop if he pulls wait until he comes back, treat, then walk. He's getting better, but still is bad, especially when leaves are blowing by. Which brings me to my next problem. He chases everything. Do any of you have advice to help me have Hugo focus on me during walks or to comfortably walk by my side without chasing leaves or other things? Thanks.

Oh and he wants to eat anything that is loose on the ground. Any advice for stopping that would be great as well.

I like these I had to find an actually puppy one because folks got grumpy over the pit bull one. :) Cause it's not a puppy but I still like the concept myself.


Try the leave it command give a toy so leave it take the toy and give a treat.
