Tips on walking

So, Sigurd is now walking, not doing the just sitting and refusing to walk thing anymore. Problem is now, he PULLS so hard, every direction you can think of. He'll calm down, then completely dart!

I need some tips on how to control his walking. He is 10 weeks tomorrow and I'd like this nipped in the butt, so I can take him on controlled walks when he is done all his distempers!

Thank you!

Re: Tips on walking

Carry treats, and change your direction or stop when he starts pulling. When he looks at you, praise and treat him. What type collar is he on? A front clip harness may be helpful if he is pulling too hard, it will re-direct him back to you when he pulls.
