Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Hello!
First I would like to thank everyone on this site and for their help and I am going to continue using it throughout Balto's life if I need help! It's nice to have somewhere where you can get help with a specific problem and not just a generic site saying the same things over and over.

Now, I was only wondering if it is possible to leash train a 13 week old puppy, it's not like he is bad on the leash, just pulls like any puppy would out of excitement. I was talking to my boyfriend and he said that he may just be too young which I kind of agree with but was wondering if there was a way to maybe start training him or if not what age would be best to train him. He loves water and I want to be able to trust him enough and have enough control over him so he is allowed to go swimming.

Thanks!

For swimming I would recommend a long lead, like a 50ft one. For normal walking, well he's a husky and they pull, its natural for them. I would invest in a walking harness, I have the easy walk, which is all right but it could be better. There are a couple other brands used by other members on here that are much better. Carry treats with you when you walk him and treat him when he walks beside you. This teaches him where you want him to be during walks. Remember, at this age, he should be walking about five minutes for every month of age he is, so at 13 weeks he should be walking about 15 minutes. Good luck!

For swimming, we just use a braided nylon rope from the hardware store. That way we don't have to worry about ruining an expensive lead.

And it's never too early to start training!

My mom was getting comments on how well her 11 week old puppy was walking on leash. Angel knows how to put on a good show. Wink In all seriousness, she shows it can be done. I think she's motivated by sheer energy and wanting to go to interesting places. Angel's still teething a bit and will start chewing the leash like a brat. Balto, of course, may train a little differently. Still, you should be able to rock the leash with a little patience and time. Go for it!
