Sounds like the pup needs to learn to heel. Look in the training section, I am sure there are threads about it

go to pets smarts and ask for the harness that closes the legs inward if she pulls, its completely harmless and works great.

Hello Titanthepitbull,

The way to prevent this when he is bigger is to get on top of it now. These dogs LOVE to pull. That is why they excel in pulling competitions. What you need to get across is that this behavior is not acceptable.

As Coach suggests, your puppy needs to learn how to heel. You can search online and find lots of different approaches to the training. Your dog should walk even or slightly behind you with NO tension on his lead/leash. When the dog feels tension on the leash it will respond by pulling. Instead of pulling back on the leash give the leash a quick jerk to the side along with a command such as "heel" (I use the command "right by me" and my dog stays right at my leg) and then release all tension on the leash. If the dog continues to pull repeat the action and command. Once the dog understands what you want it to do, it will. All they want to do is please.

Joe
