He keeps stopping and sitting down- I have tried treats. He will sometimes come whenmy boyfriend is with me but when we try to take him alone he refuses to move! I dont plan on bringing him on huge walks cause at the end of the day he is a pup but id like to be able to burn off some of his energy! Any ideas?
Try hot dogs, I have yet to meet a puppy that doesn't like them; just make sure there isn't any garlic or onion in it. Throw them ahead of you.
Keep the walks short and work on training him to walk nicely on leash, because believe me, in a few more weeks he'll go from not wanting to go to pulling till his heart content; I would also try a harness so you don't inadvertently cause damage to his little neck . Also make sure to keep to places that doesn't have a lot of strange dog traffic to be sure to avoid Parvo.
