| | New Puppy Won't walk on Leash
Hi everyone! So I usually come to the forum to get some tips and stuff about my boys (Papillon age 5 and AM Bulldog 9 wks).
I just brought Henry, My AM bulldog home last wk. So far he has been increasingly getting better with training except one thing... This little guy REFUSES to walk on a leash.
I live in the city so it's kind of a must for him to do so. We tent to go on pretty decent walks ranging from 15 mins to an hr. He will follow me if I let him walk without a leash and that's fine but i need him to be able to walk on a leash for everyone's safety, including his!
He is accoustomed to his collar, I let him drag his leash around but once I pick it up he basically lays on the ground and won't move! I have tried coaxing him with high pitched voice and rubs, also treats. He just won't budge. I have tried walking him by himself, with my Papillon, with a collar, a harness. I don't know what to do. Please advise. This is becoming very frustrating!
