    I have an 11 week old Labrador and he has been absolutely brilliant in every aspect of training he knows all sorts of things like sit and stay down nose training (touch my hand for a treat) etc but when it comes to walking he will go a few steps and sit waiting looking at me for a treat and doesn't want to walk unless I give him one if I don't he starts crying and jumping.

    Any advice would be appreciated thanks.

    My view and I know it's not what many think on here, is that you can over train a dog so that it has trouble thinking for itself. Sounds to me as if you have fallen into that category. A pup needs to explore and develop it's own character.

    Just let him be a pup

    Have asked a mod to put your thread in the right place where you are more likely to get responses.
