Hello,

I had a great Saturday with my 14 week old JR. At the Petsmart training class we walked for 15 min then again several hours later at home on the sidewalk for another 15 min. She wants to pull so we're doing the change directions method when there's tension on the leash. The next morning she walked for 15 min but around noon and the rest of the day she wouldn't walk at all. She would either sit or lay down or just dig her feet in and resist going any direction. Couldn't change direction or anything. If I let her on the grass she would go and eat or dig.

This morning she wouldn't walk on the sidewalk so I took her accross the street and down a few blocks. I got her walking but she only walked wanting to go home. Once I got there I had to pick her up again and go a few blocks away. She won't do any walking going away from the house unless it's just to go on the grass and do business or eat or dig.

It seems she doesn't really like to go for a walk when she isn't in control and able to just go on the grass.

I thought the dragging would be the main walking problem not her just sitting or laying down.

Any ideas, my next class isn't til next weekend?

Thanks!!

Thanks for the thoughts!! I didn't take her far from the house where she won't walk. She won't walk away from the house now at all, not down the driveway or in front on the sidewalk. I only took her a few blocks away to get her to do some walking even if it was to go home. Saturday and Sunday morn she walked but Sunday afternoon no more.
