Default Having a big problem with Holly

She is 6 months old and I am sad to say she never had been on a walk, till 2 days ago. To my surprise she was terrified. I had to carry her the whole time, she did nothing but wine, very loud, I was afraid someone would think she was someone else's dog and I was stealing her. She is also afraid most of the time in our back yard. Nothing has ever hurt her out in the yard. I am always with them. I have never had a dog act like this before and have no idea what to do to make her feel safe. My sister in law was with us and she couldn't believe how she acted on a walk.

Awe poor Holly!! When Leo was a pup, we took him shopping in Chicago at Nordstrom. Well he decided he was gonna scream the entire time and we were mortified. He sounded like we were killing him. And Mimi, well she hates harnesses and hates going for walks. The only way she will walk is if one of the other dogs are with us bc she basically follows them, lol.

My suggestion would be the following:
Take her as many places as you can to build her confidence
Let her wear her harness with a leash on it around the house
Bring some treats with you and use them to get her to walk

I am planning on working extra hard w Mimi this spring. She has lots to learn.

Thanks Zorana, Sadie and Ike were with us, I thought she would follow Ike, he learned from Sadie. I am glad to hear she is not the only one, and will take your advice. Funny she is the one who flew with me to NJ and back to FL and never made a peep and was a perfect little Angel. She also has trouble excepting our new little Frankie.

Keep me posted please! Hopefully we can straighten these ladies out! I'm sure if we keep at it, they will do great! I'm also using a buddy belt on her since its small and doesn't feel like clothes like a step in pupppia would.
This was mimi's last walk alone w me.....we didn't get very far, haha!!

In the summer the streets are hot, but she is just afraid, outside and a walk terrified her. It was a nice cool winter day at around degrees.

I don't walk barefoot anywhere down here too many snakes for me and bugs I have never seen before, I thought I was in another part of the world and not just another state.
