How old are the pups? I like to chain break my young hounds before I do any leash work. Just makes the transition a lot easier.

I believe LCk means to put them on a chain for a few days, they'll quit pullin and get use to it rather quickly. I do the same before I start any lead training. Another trick is to hook them on a coupler with a grown hound that is lead broke. good natured dog only please. good luck.

All dogs should be chain broke.It helps them learn to lead .Most dogs at sometime in there life get chained out.So why not break every dog at a young age...It takes days to chain break a dog.It takes 2-4 days for most dogs until they feel good about being chained out.To me I chain ALL mine out at some time.I feel they like being chained out a lot better than being in a kennel all day...Most do not bark or anything they just sit and dont move.Littleby little they start moving around....It takes time to break most dogs to lead.I can do it in a few hours on real hard dogs.10-15 min on the average dog.They wont be broke but you can walk them..Your dog is at just the right age to chainbreak.Just make sure his collar is on tight enough he cant get loose.If they get loose they fight it a little more.Thinking they can get away

NO ...You chain out for a few days.Thats the first step..Then you take a choker chain and put it on your pup.So when you pull it gets smaller.You want to pull up to make it close.Your not really choking the dog .You use a quick jerk of the lead to make the chain make a snaping sound.It just scares them a little and gets there attention.You start off walking in a big circle them change directions real quick.Then make like figure 8s.That way the dog starts looking at you.They follow you where ever you go.Most dogs you have to do this several times a year.When they get so they start pulling again.I keep a choker chain on me.Most of the time just in case I need it...But most of my dogs still pull me all the way to the truck. When we are going hunting........LOL....

Ok so I've had my dogs on the chain since I got them about 8 months ago and they from what I read here I guess are not chain broke because they have their necks rubbed raw from constantly pullin on the chain. they dont have a problem bein on it but I cant see them where they can't see me so I dont know if they are just cosntantly pullin or what. You can see the bare mark on my dog in the sig. pic... it makes me sick! I've been sprayin them with blue mule but it never seems to get better.

Change collars. Try a nice, well oiled leather collar. I have had some of the same trouble with the vinyl collars doing the same thing. Also try one with the d ring near the buckle not a center ring.

One other thing when chain breaking young dogs, it helps to have a swival at each end of the chain, and have the chain hooked to something in the open so they can't get twisted around anything and choke to death. You should make sure you can see the dog from the house, so you can check to see if they're alright every hour when you start, and every few hours there after. Also make sure there doghouse is far enough away that they can't jump on top of it and hang themselves. It's best to just keep an eye on them when first starting out with breaking.

This is very true.

Two things to try. Use a "choke chain" or Slip lead to train with a leash. Try correcting with quick sharp sideways pulls to get the dog moving from the "brakes" position. If that doesn't work pull the dog up (front legs off the ground) his legs will start to move and put him down and he will start walking. You only have to do this a few times and he will learn to walk with you. Don't let him stop your walk, you start and stop the walking not the dog!
