When to put Rottie pup on his leash
by Robert Tallman
When Thor my 13 week old rottweiler is out of the kennel or dog pen should he be on a leash at all times.
Except for when i decide to let him run?
If your pup isn't on your property then he needs to be leashed, for his own safety. You don't want him running off into traffic, chasing after other animals, or making a nuisance of himself.
If he's on your land, or in your yard though, he should be fine to run around.
If he's had all his puppy vaccinations then you can take him out and about to the park, on walks, to visit friends etc. but do leash him at those times too.
Leash training is something best done early, and also enrolling your pup in a Puppy Class at an obedience school is a good idea. It helps with socialization as well as increasing the bond between you and giving YOU somewhere to get hands-on help if problems arise.
My Leash Training A Puppy page has tips and advice if you need it.
Hope this helps, best of luck with Thor.
