Hi Kim, I agree with Mike and Jared. One thing to consider is that not only do dogs have poor experiences with leashes, and collars, but they learn quickly that once the devices are on them, that they become vulnerable, and under the physical control of whoever is handling the leash, so in addition to doing some counterconditioning with the leash doing some Offleash phase 1 would probably help him relate training and control in a positive manner too. I’m so grateful he has you!
