this new puppy bentley is so smart. cannot believe how ez to train - except the leash. he is so intimidate by it. i have taken 4 obedience classes with bigger dogs and never had a bit of issue but this dog just is very very hard to leash train. i am doing 5 min sessions with just letting him go where he wants and never pull on him for awhile until he isnt scared.
its going to take some time but will prevail. once he gets what you want he totally cooperates. i may have him drag the leash around the house tomorrow keeping my eye on him constantly so he doesnt get it tangled.
