When it comes to introducing a new puppy into your household, there’s a lot of excitement. You get to pick a name, typically, and you get to decide all sorts of things, from leash color to sleeping arrangements. But there’s also a lot of work to be done with a new puppy, because you alone are responsible for how the puppy interacts with you at home and how the puppy goes out into the wider world and behaves (or doesn’t behave) itself.
That’s why leash training is so important. Learning to properly leash train your puppy can help set you up for polite dog success. Your puppy can learn not only how to interact with other dogs, but how to interact with other humans and do so in a way that’s welcome and not frustrating or frightening. What does that involve? This graphic helps to explain it in more detail.
