get the dog used to you and the rest of its new environment.

dog collar and
leash are the right size and weight for your puppy. Keep the
training as much fun for the pup as possible, puppies
instinctively and naturally follow, so it shouldn't be too
hard. If the puppy is frightened by the leash or tries to
lead you, don't yank on the leash and possibly frighten or
injure the puppy, but rather simply stop walking and don't
move again until the pup comes back to your side.

safety. Although crate training is also helpful for
housebreaking a puppy, teaching

it out of some potentially unsafe situations, such as eating
inedible items or being injured by falling items as it plays

retrieve toys and sticks, play Frisbee, swim with you, or
even begin to get him or her in shape to join you on trail

begins to respect and bond with you. This initial
relationship is important to all the other training you will
do down the road.
