Do you carry treats with you? Some people train with positive affirmation only, but I started training my boy with treats before I realized. How do you reward your dog?

If you walk with your boy, keep him by your side, preferable behind you. When he tried to go forward, since your dog is young not much physical correction should be used so its great your starting now. I U turn my dog. If he moves to far ahead of me or doesn't stay where I want I u-turn and he is now behind where you want him. He moves back ahead U turn again. The first walk I did this on I went mayyyyybe 50 feet total and we were out for like an hour lol. It was a LOT of uturns! I would work on focus training as well so your dog looks to you and woks to follow your direction.

when I first walked my boy I was so excited that when we got to the curb he would stop by himself. My trainer said that's great but what should happen is you get to the curb and I stop, my dog will stop because I have stopped, not because of a curb. Basically you want them to look to you for what to do, not make their own walk.

Our puppy Athena used to do that all the time. We bought her a gentle leader and now she is much better at walking, even when she does not have it one. It takes some getting used to but it works really well, we just had to make sure we followed the instructions and had the nose part almost loose enough to go over to nose and the part under the crown of her head really tight. Good luck, I'm sure they will will be great at walking on a leash, people here have really good advise.

Yep, mine is terrible a leash walk. I got her the harness to prevent the pull chocking because of that reason. I possibly did not spend enough time with the u turn, treat training. I wanted to resolve the problem by going around the obstacle....so to speak. I knew she needed walking. I changed route and begun going in remote wooded trails where I could keep her unleashed. It worked for me because I wasn't looking for walking around the block kind of exercise, but I truly did not solve the problem.
She does very well without leash, doesn't not even bother about other dogs if by any chance we encounter one. Stops when she sees humans, responds to commands very well...understand turn and just simply runs freely. I think in the overall this is best for your dog because it has taught her obedience without fear or constrains. it also exploit and maximize your dog energy, and yours too...ha ha ha.
As I posted on event forum....she did excellent on park trail 5K race. She was the only dog unleashed. She just stayed with the runners for 95% of the course (deviated on wooded patch to chase chipmunk 2 times).
BUT once in a while I am forced to urban walks and here we go the pulling trend goes....I usually do these walks at night. So I take her to a field and unleash her there. She goes nuts. Even runs circles.
I would say that I also like to get her to "leash walk" better. She even stays beside me and listen if I walk her without leash...but once I put that damn thing on is another story. I truly would like to work more on this leash walk exercise.
