I'm new to standard poodles and have to say I'm just amazed at how she doesn't seem to walk but does this bouncy prance thing like she's got springs in her paws where her feet barely touch the ground unless she's in full run. I call her my bouncy little lamb, or tigger. Anyway, I'm used to training how to walk on a show lead but this girl is not a show dog. I've got her on a regular flat collar right now but she's needing to size up, and I'm wondering if I shouldn't try a different type of collar and possibly a harness for walks? Would a rolled leather collar be better with poodle coat? Right now she's 15 weeks and willingly walks along with the pack most of the time but I want to start doing one on one walking training with her once she gets her last set of shots in a week and we can expand on our current little route.
