At what age did you start walking your puppies and for how long? Loki is 14 weeks now and I'd like to start taking him out for short walks, if its not too early.

I didn't start walking Tala until about 6 months old. I didn't want to over exert her because she wrestles all day with Odie, plus obedience training on top of that.

I started walking Odie around 3 months though, because he's light boned and not a muscular breed.

How do you get them used to the leash? Right now, Loki just wants to clamp down and tug.

I feed them their meals while they're out on their walk, each time a little further from home, until they are no longer scared of going out on walks.

They get the picture pretty quick that way.

I will probably start working my EB once he gets all his shots from the Vet (he will be 3 months on 4/23) so maybe sometime in May I will begin walking him
