I got a 7,5 lbs Morkie. When we go for a walk she stops at every 15 feet and just looks around. She is very interested in everything she see on our walk together. If she sees someone mowing the lawn, parking a car, a person walking or another dog she stops to observe. I simply can’t get her to walk like normal dogs. I have tried everything, such as treats and toys. These worked a couple of times but then she realized if she stops she gets a treat or toy. She then started to learn that she could stop even more frequently and get a another treat. Also, if we don't go in the direction she wants she throws a tantrum. She will sometime lay on her back like a 3 year old and refuse to go any further. Luckily she is small and I can pick her up and carry her for a few steps and then put her down. We will take a few more steps and it starts all over again. I’ve had her since she was 7 weeks old. She has been this way from the beginning. I pick her up, carry her for a while and put her down again. We went to dog training school and there she did everything well. But out on the street she is a drama queen. Nothing traumatic has happened to her that could have scared her from walking normally. She just turned 1 year old and I am stressed out and exhausted. I love my little princess but I'm totally helpless to figure out how we could enjoy normal walks together. Please help!
