Get your puppy accustomed to collar and leash. Start with a narrow, soft collar at first and allow it wear constantly. Attach a light lead and allow it to drag for few days. Then by gently holding it walk along the pup so that it can’t feel the lead too much.

“Sit” can sometimes be taught using a non-physical method. Hold some biscuits in the hand and show it to him. The pup will be interested in the hand and will watch it. Move the hand back over the pups head. While it is watching the hand. This act probably cause him to sit. When he does so, say sit. If the pup is not responding to it, follow physical methods.
