Usually my pair will follow me everywhere and I like to get them out and about so take them for walks...however, sometimes they get confused who their daddy is and start following random people and I have to walk after them and turn them around...I'll be getting leashes once they're big enough for a proper harness but any tips for keeping them follow me? I do not all to them and call a lot while we are on walkies.

Do you speak to them?

Ours do follow other humans if they can't find us, but they definitely prefer us and I think they mostly recognise us by voice. So in a 'crowd' they'll come to my voice instead of someone else's.

Yes I try to talk to them a lot " come on boys" or "that's not your mummy/daddy" if they start following other people, but it doesn't always work...if I tap them on the shoulder and turn them around to follow me that will sometimes work but I can be just walking with them and someone will walk past next to me and heyll decide to follow them instead.
