diggiedog Do not let him lead you. Hold the leash so he is on your left side and shorten it so he is right next to you. You have both hands on the leash with the right one at the top end of the leash and the left one shortening it then using it to guide him next to you. Try to always walk him this way(only letting it lose so he can relieve himself) and say heel so he will learn the command, and continue to keep him next to you with little pulls. This will take time for him to learn, but it is important that u do not let him lead... You must show him that you are the alpha dog. Don't mean to sound like a bitch, but you will appreciate it once he learns.
