Puppy Training Principles Podcast

Episode 14: Short Walk

Exercise is awesome and important, but sometimes overemphasized with puppies. We want walks to be structured and focused with the owner in control. Now, it takes time to teach a puppy how to do this but these techniques will help you get there. Walks with your puppy may only be 5-10 minutes out in the driveway and that’s ok! It’s good to start small and then as your puppy gets better and better, start to challenge them step by step. A young puppy will most likely not be able to go around the block without you or the puppy getting frustrated, so keep it small until your puppy can handle more.
