    Hi all, I would really appreciate some help:
    My 20 week old dachshund absolutely HATES going out for walks. Whenever I put his coat and lead on him and take him outside to walk, he literally just sits there, and doesn’t move a muscle.
    It’s gotten to the point where I have had to take treats out with me, and literally drag it along the path, this way he does move and follows the treat.
    Obviously I can’t continue this tip forever, so is there anything else I can do?
    Thanks in Advance :)

    Why not carry him up the road and see if he'll walk back home. Maybe he doesn't like wearing a coat not all dogs do.

    Hi there @Alfie Wheeler, welcome to PF. Few questions if you don't mind
    What's he like going into the garden/ out not on a walk?
    How did you introduce the coat/ harness/ walking on a lead?
    What's he like if you do those things and don't go out?

    Basically, some more info to determine if this is an outside issue, a walks issue, or a gear issue. We can help whatever the issue is, but how you go about each one is different.
