The moment your new puppy comes home with you is an incredible one. Your home feels brighter and happier immediately. You’re delighted to show your new buddy your home, and you know your home will never be the same. After some much needed discovery and cuddle time, you realize you’ve got a big task on your hands: training your dog.
It’s true, training your new puppy begins the moment they come into your home. There are a million best dog training videos out there and lists of best practices around on how to train a puppy. The training process can be a pain, but it can also be incredibly rewarding. When your pup begins to understand words like “Good” and “No,” you begin to feel the satisfaction every good dog owner feels. At this point, it’s a good idea to pick up a good leash and collar to begin using a dog training leash.
When To Start Leash Training
There isn’t a hard and fast rule around leash training. Many owners have living situations that require them to use a leash right from the start. Others wait for months before they use a leash. A good general estimate is to not wait more than two or three months before you leash train your dog.
When you do begin leash training, you’ll need the basics: a leash and a collar and a place to walk around. A simple leash should do the trick. Although, you should consider quality and durability. After all, these walks are going to be the first of many, and you don’t want to be burning through cheap leashes every few months. Check out Woofwerks simple yet high-quality leather leashes for an example. These leashes are made in the USA with high quality, English Bridle leather and will pass the test of time.
When you begin leash training your dog, don’t expect it all to fall into place after a few good walks. You’ll even need to work on getting your dog accustomed to simply wearing a collar. Don’t expect to put the collar and leash on and go right outside.
Try putting the collar on your dog while hanging out at home, playing with your dog’s favorite toy, and give pooch a chance to forget they’re even wearing the collar. This will soon become second nature to them and allow you to attach the leash with little to no fuss. When you’re thinking of buying a collar, consider one that’s beautiful and durable like our unique leather collars.
