im gonna go insane! i've been trying to teach my 9 month old lab, Koda, how to behave while he's on his leash. i train him in my backyard to minimize distractions. i want him to learn how to behave while he's on his leash before i try to teach him how to walk loosely on the leash. i was reading a guide on www.milkbone.com and it says to give him a treat whenever he looks at me so he'll realize that paying attention to me will bring about rewards. it worked out for a little bit, but now he only behaves when he sees my hand near my pocket because he expects a treat. he starts biting at the leash every 10 minutes or whenever he realizes that the leash is restricting him from going forward. i don't want him chewing though the leash. what's a good way to teach him how to stop biting the leash and behave while on the leash? also what's a good way to teach him how to walk on the leash loosely?
