It only took me 2-3 weeks to get my new dog to sit patiently for the leash to be connected. A few sessions of standing there like a tree until she did. I actually had to teach her sit first in that time as well, that was one of the first uses of it.

I stood in front of her at the closed door and got her attention and said "sit" once, and waited until she did, or after a several minutes if she didn't I would just walk back in the living room and put the leash down for a minute and try again. Once she figured it out it was all over.

Now she gets all excited and wiggly if I even say the word leash, much less seeing it my hand. When we get to the door she sits for me to hook her up without even a word.
