I did not know you had an actual puppy but if your putting pressure on his neck'd be doing it wrong.

When your playing with him in the yard and keeping an idea on him!! You can let him play while he drags the leash around. He get use to it and you could pick up the leash and just walk the yard for a bit and he will get used to it.

If your letting him run around all willy nilly with a harness that will be what he learns to do. It's a balancing act I suppose??

This trainer is in my SLL thread and it is geared towards puppies. It should help.

Thanks. He's graduated away from the retractable leash and I'll check out that link.
