Default leash training

what is a good age to start leash training a puppy? also what is better a regular collar or a harness? my cousin who has also has a boxer says that im going to want to use a harness because its easier to control the dog when they start pulling while on the leash?

Immediately when you get the puppy (assuming 10-12 weeks). I highly recommend a harness. Puppies necks are so small and they are so prone to run to the end of the leash until they learn to loose leash walk. I still keep Maggie on an Easy Walk harness because it helps prevent pulling.

Check online hunting stores. We have Cabelas or Wholesale sports here, I know Cabelas has a U.S. online store.

What is a freedom no pull harness. Is it different than the easy walk? We just started on the easy walk.

You don't necessarily have to get the name brand "no pull" harness. Get the "H" harness, the kind that buckles around them and has the normal D ring on top but also the round ring on the chest that the shoulder and chest straps connect to. You can clip the leash to that front ring and get the same kind of effect. Stopped Bruno from pulling instantly.

The freedom no pull harness has tons of colors ... They may have the orange you are looking for... Search you tube for the freedom no pull harness and you will see how well it works ... brand name or not ... It's awesome. Zeus is a while new dog with it... I am getting one for my lab too cause she is a puller .

I'm not sure what the easy walk is. When I looked up a no pull harness . The freedom no pull came up and the reviews were awesome
