Sorry for the delay replying. I've been away.

Most dogs start out being afraid of the leash and collar. Leave the leash out
on the floor like it is a toy. When he sniffs it or shows an interest, reward him
with his favorite treat or game. After a few days, clip it to his collar and then
give him his favorite reward and then take the leash off. Gradually progress to
picking up the leash and walking down a hallway. As he gets more comfortable,
start taking him outside on the leash.

Also make sure that it is an appropriate size leash for his size. I like to use a
thin leather leash in place of nylon, chain or rope style leashes.
