Pls advice Also how long should a 4 mth Lab be walked for.?

Whenever I take my 4 mth old Lab he always tries to pry for food on the road.Though I say a firm no everytime he does that and pry my hands in his mouth to take the thing out he does it all the time Walks are full of abrupt pulls and tugs to hunt for such matter Unfortunately as it is we dont have decent places to walk our dogs which leaves us with nowhere but the road.Pls advice Also how long should a 4 mth Lab be walked for. We play catch and other games with him at home to make him run around on the terrace

Not sure where you live, but if you are in chennai area , I can help. However the bigger point is , you need to train your own dog. The fact that he is constantly trying to get some thing out of you is a good thing which you can use to your advantage.

The only way to train dogs effectively is using marker/clicker method. You can do a simple google search on Marker training 101 or clicker training 101 and read up. It is very simple and straight forward.

Your dog should be walked for as long as it required for him to get tired. Also while walking he needs to learn to follow you and not act frantic and pull here and there.

All my dogs are marker trained. And I trained them myself.

You can see many training videos at www.youtube.com/user/rrnsss including heel walk.

Thank you Mr Subramanium.I have heard to clicker training but the clicker is not available in Indore
I have employed an obediance trainer for him and he is in his 2nd month of training after which I wish to discontinue the trainer and train him myself

There is no need for clicker. Your mouth can be the clicker. The problem with "trainers" is that they use avoidance and compulsion methods. If I were you , I would train my own dog. Just My Opinion

i had the same problem with my gsd. he always pulled his leash, then i used the choke chain and took him for walks daily, the problem is solved now. also u may use another trick. u can make ur dog run around the terrace for at least 20 mins so that he is exhausted then u take him out for a walk. he will no longer pull on his leash.
