One of the first things to do while leash training your dog is to put aside all prejudgements regarding dog behavior. The misconception is that dogs who pull while walking on a leash try to be in 'control' or 'alpha' over their owner. That thought process can harm the training process and create barriers during training.
Contrary to popular belief, you can't use just any leash when teaching your pup the obedience basics. The best dog leashes for training will vary in style and size, depending on what you're teaching.
