    Puppy Pulling on Leash to come home

    I have three-month old Weimeraner. He is the best. He is pretty good on a leash for about half the walk and I try to reward him often for staying next to me and not pulling. But once we turn around to back home, he just pulls like a mad man. I've tried everything--stopping and waiting for him to calm down. Calling him back and then rewarding him when he does, etc. But as soon as we start back up, he pulls again.

    He just seems determined to go home!

    Any other suggestions? I am going to get him some time with a trainer, but that probably won't happen for a few more weeks.

    Thanks

    He is still young and the big wide world can be a scary place, I have gone through the same with puppies but they grew out of it once they got more confident.
    You could try walking in random directions, turning often, encouraging with toy or titbit

    Thanks. You are probably right. He might just be too young to really train. He is a great dog and is really good for about 1/2 the walk. But then just wants to go home. I will try some of your techniques. Thanks for the tips.
