How do you stop pup chewing and tugging his lead as if it is a game on a walk?

tht's it really. He tends to do it at the beginning of a walk and once more during the walk. He clearly thinks it is enormous fun and it is very difficult to get him to drop it!

i think it's okay for them to do this isn't it? I've always encouraged my dogs to play with their leads.
If it's too excessive get him to do a bit of heel work, or some sits or downs to get him in a 'working' place.
Or maybe if he's a retrieving breed, he'd carry a ball or retrieving toy?

It depends, FiveHoursSleep. Patch will sit beautifully if I stop to talk to someone. Then he quietly chews right through his lead shock. We had to have a chain lead in between the collar and his actual lead. Now we use a harness it's better, because it's out of the way.

Thanks cuebill. I've done two sessions and seeing big progress. He's happily munching on a Kong with his lead attached at the moment as well as a kind of lazy man's version!
