Then, when he is comfortable in the collar, attach a small, lightweight lead. The one you select must have a secure catch, yet be simple to attach and release as necessary. Until now, your puppy has simply gone where he has pleased, and will find it very strange to be attached to someone who is restricting his movements. For this reason, when training my own puppies, I like to allow them to take me for the first few sessions, then I start to exert a little pressure. Soon enough, training can start in earnest, with the puppy coming with me as I lead the way.
It is usual to begin training the puppy to walk on your left-hand side. When this has been accomplished to your satisfaction, you can try moving him on your right but there is absolutely no hurry. If you plan to show your Dachshund, you will generally move your dog on your left, but there are occasions when it is necessary also to move him on your right so as not to obstruct the judge's view.
