How are you doing it right now? What is the age of your dog, and have they been trained to walk on leash in the past? How much exercise does your dog get?

Is your dog jumping up on you, or leaping around? If he's jumping up on you, do you allow him to jump on you in the house? Has he been taught to not jump up on you?

If your dog isn't getting much exercise, to start off it would help to tire your dog out mentally or physically. If you have a yard, play fetch. Play tug. Do some training to tire him out mentally.

i held the leash in my right hand with the leash
going across my body to the right (connected to the collar).
i held my left hand over the top off the leash. my left slid up and down
the leash as needed. when ever we met a person or animal i slid
my left hand down the leash so my pup couldn't jump. practice/train a lot.
don't wait untill it's time to walk to train. you can train in the house.
invite family, friends and neighbors over to help you train. use them
as distractions. i did a lot of training in front of the Supermarket
and 24 hour stores.

To the OP,

You've been given good advice in your threads. I believe all of them so far have suggested you/your parents finding a training class.

From gaining some more info from your other threads... I agree. Enroll in some classes. Best would be a good training center, a good trainer but even some classes at a Petsmart or Petco would at least give you a starting point.
