Collar and Lease Training
Have some treats ready when you begin to introduce a collar and a leash. Place the collar on your puppy and offer a treat, praising them all along. They may scratch at it or act concerned, but it is just something new. Make sure you can get two fingers underneath the collar to ensure that it is not too tight and that she is comfortable. Take it off after a few minutes and put it back on another time for a longer period of time. It won’t take long for your puppy to get used to their new collar.
When you introduce the leash, connect it to their collar, but don’t hold onto it. Just let them get used to the feel of it. Play with them, but don’t let them chew on the leash. Give them a treat and gently lead them, using the leash and praising them as they follows your guidance.
