Going for a walk in the morning with my 5 mth lab is getting very difficult,help?

Going for a walk in the morning with my 5 mth lab is getting very difficult as all he wants is to eat whatever he finds on the way including diwali bombs (ladi pieces) It is difficult to set a pace with this fellow stopping for every interesting thing on the road , sniffing around and tugging. Inspite of several warnings and loud no's he doesn't seem to change As it is , 5:30am in the morning is very dark and I can hardly make out what he is eating/sniffing Should I carry his dog biscuits to distract him from these activities

i also suffered same problem....you can distract him by giving biscuits but it wil became habbit...how you used to take him for walk with leash or without leash....with leash means what kind ob belt ur using body belt or normal belt or choke chain.....my trainer said while walking choke chain is best because if ur pup pick any unwanted thing means you have to put so he willl know that it is wrong and he wont repeat again
another method u just train ur pup with trainer or by urself and teach him no/off command so he will learn.....i teach my puppy no command and now he is completely fine

its not a bad idea but using of muzzle is not prefer by experts....use choke collar itself whenever he picks up anything just choke him...he will soon change......if you dont know how to use choke chain correctly watch some video from you tube.....

Before training your puppy for a walk, you should train him first to obey your command or sound at home.The way you saying it seems he is not respecting you as a leader. So first try to spend time in google to know about leadership skills for dogs. After that try it with your Lab, then you will see the difference. Labs are the best dogs in the world who will respect humans like no other dog. If you need any help let me know.
