...and he refused to budge, he would not walk two steps so it ended up he had to get carried the full way. Any tips? We live in a town centre so it's quite noisy. Back home now and he's back to his usual wee self.
He's been out quite a bit being carried, he wasn't even being nosey about anything, just planked himself and stared at us until he got lifted. Stubborn Maybe better luck in the daylight I think.Is this his first trip out to see the big wide world, or have you taken him out before carrying him to get him used to seeing everything going on?
If it is his first trip outside, imagine stepping into an alien environment, I'm not sure I'd want to budge either
Time and patience, and carry him if needs be to get him used to every day sights and sounds, he shouldn't be lead walked much in any case, it's more important to let him socialise and interact with everything going on around him
Nah unfortunately not, which would be good for him socialising too. A wee old man went past and stopped to ask about him and he was jumping up all over him, then went back to not budging lol - think he's just used to being carted around everywhere the past few weeks.Most puppies are the same.. Do you have friends with a dog? Maybe he would follow the older dog if he had a buddy
Good luck - we may need itMost puppies do this! :laugh: I have been letting Alice run around the house with her lead attached so she is used to it also I practise lead walking in the garden with her walking round and round armed with bits of her kibble to treat and praise her with :lol: Its working well although she still has her moments and we haven't been out for an actual proper walk outside the garden yet so time will tell haha!
