Two Easy Lessons
A couple of important lessons your puppy should learn.

Now begin to play one of your games. Hide and seek works well here. You can also just have the puppy follow you around for a treat. After ten minutes, remove the collar and leash and repeat the routine tomorrow. By the third day of the puppys following you around, you are ready to let puppy take the lead. Now let the puppy lead you around the house or the yard. The leash is no reason to be afraid, so don't start scaring Walt by tugging him around the block.
By the fourth or fifth day, you can start asserting your leadership role. Lead him around gently, without tugging. This is not his first heeling lesson, just an introduction to his new accessories. Well teach him to heel in a couple of weeks.
Keep in mind during all training that you must use your common sense, be consistent and have patience. Just when you may think that all is hopeless, your puppy turns into the perfect little lady or gentleman.
