I need some serious help here. My 6 month old min pin/chihuahua/doxie mix only walks on her terms. Every few hours I take her downstairs to pee/poop (I live in a two story apartment) and in the morning and/or evening I try to walk her. Sometimes she is FABULOUS. she walks loose leash, happily and it's wonderful. But randomly she will simply refuse to walk. Just sit her butt down in the grass and not give in. I've tried EVERYTHING. new leash, old leash, treats, using the "come" command, talking in a happy voice and even flat out sitting at the edge of the yard and waiting for her to come. But absolutely nothing works. If she doesn't want to walk, it's not happening. What do I do?

Try coaxing her with some "high value" treats (something she goes totally bonkers for). How does she respond to toys? Maybe try to get her chase something... get her interest and make it fun! Be upbeat (don't punish her) and persistant/patient, she'll come around. Good luck!
