Howie and "The Walk"

I have read several dog resources which point out the importance of walking your dog.  I know Howie is young and to start with short walks, but he seems to hate "the walk".  When walking away from the house he pulls back or sits down.  Then when we turn around he strains to run back to the house.  Has anyone had this type of experience with their pups.  Any ideas on overcoming?

Howie saw the vet - 10 weeks old

Took Howie to the vet today for his second round of vaccines.  The vet love doodles, so she was excited to see him and glad we got a new doodle.  I had to laugh at the front desk girl because she was telling me how cute my puppy was and of course responded that she probably says that to all the puppies -- she said ours was exceptionally cute.  :-)  He weighed in at 12.0 pounds.  All is well on check-up.

Howie is home

Howie came home to Traverse City Michigan on 3/17/12.  We picked him up from a family farm in Sheridan, MI, where Howie was one of a litter of 4 (the only male).  His 3 sisters are still waiting for their forever homes.  He turned 9 weeks yesterday.  Pictures are posted on my page -- as noted by other owners of black doods here, they are hard to photograph.

Toy ideas

Our new puppy comes home next Saturday and eventhough we just went through this less than two years ago I am finding it difficult to pick toys out.  What type do your puppies like?  How many toys do you have around for the puppy?  Thanks for your opinions and input!
