How to leash train my dog?

Hi, I'm leash traing my 6 month old labrador retriever, teaching him to heal, walk on loose leash, not to pull,etc. By October,he'll be fully trained to walk reliably on leash anywhere.I'd like to know, how many minutes he will need walk for? Ive read 45 minutes of brisk walking is enough along with some mental exercise but i feel that'll be insuffient as as a puppy he's extreamly active and play full.please advise.

Very good to know that you have a lot of work on your companion. Another way is to provide him with some tough challenges like chasing a ball, or train him to run besides your bike or bicycle. Fetching is my favourite.

Hi suraj, my labrador is a great retriever, he's trained to bring back an object when thrown away. I myself trained him using a clicker.unfortunately cycling with him will be difficult as our roads are accident prone. I have got Kong for him.He loves food so we stuff food in it and let him take it out. Any idea how many hours of daily walk a labrador needs?

Hi Navjot,

Regarding your question that how many hours that lab needs walks daily, i would say its all depends on individual dog, as we both are indians, the exercise for you and me vary based upon our lifestyle, food, genetics, and health. Dogs are also similar to that, eventhrough the breed is lab, you need to walk him based on his requirements, less exercise leads behavioral problems and more exercise leads health damage.

Hope this helps...

Regards,
Kamal

kamal, first thing-How are you? Its been quiet a while not heard from you. I think you are right.As a puppy,he's extreamly active.Right now its about two hours of exercise-6 to 7 in the morning and 12 to 12:30 at night when i return from office. As im working and have no other to take him out-dont want to bother parents more as im already greatful to them for taking care of him in my absence-i hope two hours would suffice when he grows older.
