How to work on behavior with 2 dogs when it comes to walking

How would you guys work on two dogs that seem to feed off of each other?

I have two doxbulls, basically a American Staffordshire and Dachshund mix. When I tell them we are going for a walk, they get super excited and then when I walk them, they pull and go crazy.

If it's just one of them, it's a lot more manageable but with two dogs, one will go crazy wanting to pull, then the other does as well and I can't control it

Hi Mike

I think most dogs consider their exercise time the main event of the day so it's not the ideal time for training.

Is there anywhere you can let them run free to burn off a bit of energy for a while before their walk? Or walk them separately for 20mins or so first (maybe roping in a helper to take one while you take the other, in different directions). I'm thinking that you could then walk them together when they are not so excited and maybe they would be more amenable to a bit of training as to how to walk properly together. I'm not suggesting you do this forever, just until they learn to walk with a bit of decorum. Probably not my best idea ever, but it's all I can think of.

I really believe u have to train each dog to walk well on a leash individually before u can expect them to walk well together
Train around the house inside then outside to walk well on leash slowly add more distractions
Most dogs have to work their way up to walking well on a leash I walked both my dogs together when I had them both but it took about a year of training to get to that point and they still had moments where it was too much for them so still had some work to do before my older dog passed
