Let her get used to the leash. Dont try to walk with her just yet. Put on the leash and let her play with it on but without you holding it. If shes more comfortable at home do it there. Don't pull or tug on her at all. She's just a baby.

Your puppy is too young to expect her to walk on a leash. Stay at home, put the leash on her, let her walk and drag it around the house and yard.

You can do an exercise to help her with the leash acceptance by having some yummy treats in your hand or pocket. Get her attention, walk slowly backwards calling her name, give her a treat. Do this first with her just dragging the leash. Then, begin holding the leash and give her treats as she follows you around the yard. Gradually, over time, get her used to going further and then gently, and with more treats, begin leaving the yard as she gains confidence.

If you continue to hit her in frustration, you will ruin this dog. If you can't be happy and positive when playing and training her, don't do it at all.

Please do not drag your puppy. Please do not hit your puppy. How old are you? Ask your parents if they will pay for you to take the puppy to classes.

A chain collar? You should have your pup on a harness or flat collar at this age. I would also have high value treats and lure her along, keep it fun.
If you are frustrated, then please dont work with her...she'll feel your emotions, and it isn't fair to a baby pup.

Maybe you didn't fit the harness right/ pup shouldn't be able to chew it. If that chain is choking her, you may be shutting her down. There are many collars to choose from, the "choke chain" is by far the worst thing made.
