Re: how to make dog not walk too fast
ryt, I am not sure where you are located, but you are in need of a good puppy class, or rather two separate good puppy classes, one each for each of your puppies.
I am saying this because first of all I think all puppies can benefit from a well run puppy class with a good trainer; second because you have two; and thirdly because you are really very new at this and you can learn a great deal and improve the next thirteen years immensely for you and these pups.
A puppy class will start you on the right track, using positive reinforcement to get the puppies to want to work with you. At the end your puppy should be able to sit, and down, come and stay, and walk reasonably well on a lead. The puppy also is socialized to different people, a different place, and other puppies.
After the puppy classes (usually six or eight classes, one class per week) are finished, you should sign right up for basic obedience.
They weren't kidding when they said two is more than double the work. I like doing two at a time. Three is murderous though. But your puppies should go out with you, each alone. Socialization and training should be done individually, and if you want added time doing the two of them.
You are running out of the critical socialization period between three and sixteen weeks, when the pups are imprinted by their experiences. This does not mean that all is lost, it just means you will have to work harder after this period. You have a job a head of you. Good luck.
