thank you, he looks so cute & innocent, doesn't he?!

btw, how come when i put a dog leash around his neck and try to walk him, he doesn't want to walk or follow me but when i take it off then he would wiggle his tail and follow happily. can you tell me what i need to do to get him use to the dog leash?

thanks

Keep it on him in the house at first, so he gets used to it. Then when he's on leash try to make him come to you with a treat in your hand and get him to follow the treat while you walk next to him. He should catch it pretty fast.

And he's really adorable! What breed/mix is he?
