walking on lead issues
Domo (8 mo. old yorkie) still doesn't like to walk outside. When I say "let's go outside!" he get's excited, is super happy to put his harness on, jumps around when I attach the lead. He's fine, and seems to love it. I say "c'mon let's go!" and he runs to the front door (lead and harness on). He doesn't mind it at all. Then....we get outside and he might walk about 10 ft or so, but he just sits there. I usually have to carry him. We practice everyday. I've used treats, positive encouragement...I don't know what else to do. He just won't walk.
There have been one or two days where he'll walk to the grass, but all he wants to do it sniff. He will not keep walking. We don't even make it around the block because he just sits. I have called him to me and he won't budge. So I wait for him, and sometimes he moves and comes to where I am. lol, but then he just sits back down! Meanwhile, my chihuahua has been around the block 4 times! (not literally)
What do I do?
