My 10 1/2 week old pup and I started Hillman today. He loved retrieveing and brought it right back to me with excitement. We moved right into walk on a lead. HE HATES IT. HE dug his feet in and would not budge. He looked at me and I looked at him. We started walking and he would rather the leash choke him than follow mw. I realize some of this is natural. He was resisiting so much that the his collar started to choke him and he yelp and started to gag. I stopped it right there. He followed me inside and went to sleep. I know this is a lot for him, I am just wondering if I did the right thing by stopping it.
Any suggestions what I should do if he continues to dig in? Should i just keep walking calmly and pulling him through the grass while he digs his heels in?
