I recently aquired a border collie/lab pup, and have a few questions about raising it. Sage is about 3 months old now and I want to get the training off on the right foot. One problem on my mind lately is the loose leash problem, obviously sage likes to pull when we are walking, and i'm told leash training can begin right away, but how am I supposed to walk my dog for exerise when i should be training her in small amounts. Example, start leash training by practising with small distances, so I was thinking my backyard or whatever, but now i can't walk my dog in the morning and at night? Kind of confused. Sorry if this sounds jumbled.
