Leash training is easy. Once the dog pulls on the leash - you change directions and go the other way. You might only go 10 or 15 feet before he is pulling in this new direction and then you turn and go back the other way. The neighbors might think you are a little nutty but your pup will quickly get the association. "When I pull, I don't get to go there".
One thing, when you change directions, don't stop or worry about the leash pulling on your pup. After all, he does not seem to care if he drags you down the street.
Don't make a fuss if he sits down or refuses to go - keep on walking, in fact, speed up. I guarantee that he will decide to get on his feet and go in the new direction.
One thing, you do need to get a handle on this before he gets too much bigger. Once they reach 6 months or so they are much harder to drag in the new direction.
