Hi my parents have an english mastiff and they've been having trouble with getting her to walk across their kitchen floor and some other floors in their house.
Basically she'll lay on 1 side of the floor and whine if you call her to come to you. Every once in awhile she'll eventually come on her own but most of the time you have to pick her up and sort of push her along. Once you get her up she'll go on her own but she continues to be scared the next time. Shes also about 170 pounds so its not exactly an easy task to get her up.
Shes only like 2 1/2 years old and this has been a problem for quite some time now. I think she was fine when she was smaller but since shes gotten bigger shes taken a few spills on the floor and this has been the result. My mother makes sure her nails are always cut but that still doesn't help. My little brothers dog runs across the floor all the time so shes seen other dogs do it.
Anybody ever have this problem with their dog and figure out a way to fix it?
