I know someone who had the same problem initially. I believe she used food treats to entice the dogs til they figured out that walks were normal. Once the dogs started moving forward for the treats, the motion just kinda kept going I think.

i've never had one of my pups act any differently while learning the ropes of walking on a leash at a young age.
if your one pup if fine by herself...then dont change it now! keep just takin one by him/herself until they feel confident enough to be together.
they BOTH have to be trained seperately before they can ever be trained together.
Im learning this right now(it's a hard lesson to learn, when you wanna just be with ALL of them at the same time instead)
But it does make things alot easier in the long run.
Best of luck!

Congrats!!!!.. That's a big first step!!! I would say to keep some cut up hot dogs chopped up into tiny pieces if they should start to lose interest in the walk. Keep up the good work
