Start out in an obstacle free room, attach the leash to the puppy and let him/her drag the leash around behind. (Of course, you should never leave the puppy unattended while doing this.)

When the pup is quite comfortable with this - then take hold of the end and let the puppy go where it wants, with you tagging along behind.

When the puppy is quite comfortable with this - try a short walk. When the puppy stops wanting to cooperate, then you are done. Just stop. Get out a favorite toy, leave the leash on for a minute while you play with the toy, then pick the pup up and go back in the house. Try again later.

Remember - being on the leash needs to be FUN!!
