Hello All! I can use some help. We just adopted a 2-3 month old German Shepherd mix pup on Saturday. He is great and getting more comfortable now so his true colors are beginning to shine :) Everytime I take him out to go for a walk, he tends to lay down and not move when I tell him to come. Of course, we are still working on the "Come" command so he doesn't know what I am talking about yet, but when I tug the leash, he just wants to stay put. I have enticed him with treats as well as my "Happy Voice" as well as affection but most of the time he won't come unless there's a treat. Once I give him the treat, he will lay back down again. Starting to think the treat thing isn't going to work as planned. Any suggestions? Should I pull him? Should I not? How long do I wait out the battle of the minds?
