    I would sit back down ans pretend to be occupied and put the lead aside.

    When he comes to you then ask for a sit and put the lead on. If you insist on this he will know that no way does he go out and go for the walk until he sits nicely for his lead.

    I had a similar problem with my first Dog barking madly and chasing around in circles, worked quite quickly and I use it on my crew now.

    Those who get excited don't get their leads put on and each gets theirs on when they come to me and stand quietly, even if I have to stand there several minutes at first.

    Meg used to do that alot...it drove me barmy!!
    In the end I did what Brainless did, just ignored it until she realised I was not having any of it...shes better now, but still tries it on the odd occasion.
    Also I found if i picked her lead up and put it on once she was outside the door she was much better, gets excited still and does a little run on the garden, but then comes to me for her lead to be put on. Obviously this won't work for all and you have to have good recall, but it works for Meg :p
