There is nothing quite like the fun you and your pup will have going out for nice long walks. At least, that is what we want things to be like as our pups grow up. Of course, without the proper training, your pup is not likely to behave, especially when he is charging around at the end of his leash. However, with the proper training, you would be amazed at what you can teach your pup to do.
Walking properly on the end of his leash should be one of the first things you work on teaching him once he has mastered the four basic commands, 'come', 'sit', 'stay', and 'down'. Learning how to walk properly on a leash is not a difficult concept, but it can take your bull terrier a little time to master it. Be patient and work with him every time you take him out for a walk and it really won't be that long before the two of you can go practically anywhere together.
There is more to walking on the end of a leash for your pup than trying to drag you along with him every time you go for a walk. Once properly trained, your pup will be able to walk with you without pulling your arm off. In turn, this will make it much more pleasant for both of you. Most people start their training in their own backyard before moving to the outside world.
If you can't start out in your backyard due to space limitations, you may find the next best thing is to try and pick a time of day when there are fewer vehicles, people, and other dogs around. The important thing here is that it is much easier to get your pup to follow instructions when there are fewer distractions around to take his mind off what you are trying to teach him.
Once your pup has mastered the four basic skills of 'come', 'sit', 'stay', and 'down', he is ready to move on to things like learning to go for walks on the end of his leash without trying to tear your arm out. The one thing to keep in mind during the training and afterward is that you should never try to use punishment or admonishment to train your dog; positive reinforcement has been proven to be the best method. You should also lay in a few supplies and training props, including:
Time and patience are the two most important tools you can have in your kit. Bull terriers are very intelligent but tend to be a bit more stubborn than some breeds, so don't expect miracles. Just keep working with your pup as often as you can, and he will figure it out.
