    Default Rumble "walking"

    This is Rumble on our "walk" last night. Since we only made it accross the street and then he refused to move, I am thinking someone needs to explain him the concept of "walking" again!

    Well in bully world ....... "walking" actually means going as far as the bully feels like it, and then plopping down wherever they happen to be at the time, and getting their bully pawrent to carry them home.

    In that case Rumble has the concept down perfect!!
    However, our trainer seems to think we need to practice walking. This is extremely difficult when Rumble will not cooperate!

    Maybe your trainer has never been owned by a bully!!! I have now had four bullies .. and only two of them show any interest in walking. The other two would prefer to sit in the front seat of the car and be driven around .... preferably to ANYWHERE that as a drive thru so that whoever is at the window can shower them with love and attention!!

    Our bullie Abby loovvveeessss to walk the problem is when she is done - she is DONE. lol She will park her 65 lb. bullie butt for the next hour or until you carry her home. Seriously thinking about investing in a doggie stroller.

    Ellie enjoys her walks. One thing that we did is that before we started walking her, we would let her run around the house with the collar/harness on with the leash attached and dragging behind her. This was to let her get used to the added weight and we did it for about 10 minutes or so every night for a couple of weeks before we started walking. Obviously, make sure that you're there to supervise so that the leash doesn't get caught on anything.

    We haven't tried broccoli with Rumble but he won't even move for his other treats. Once he plants his butt he is not moving unless I pick him up. So frustrating! Some days he will walk and walk and others he is like I don't know what you are thinking mom but I am not moving!

    Guinevere used to do well walking with the big dog, but now that B is gone little miss Guinevere usually refuses to do anything other than potty (unless she sees someone who will give her attention!). I don't want to force it though, because soon enough it wil be too hot in the desert for a walk!

    Some like to go for walks and some don't. BeBe, Jewel, and Diva love to go on walks. Buddy and Lucy could care less but will walk with you. Blondie would go the the end of the driveway and that's it. So just be patient, try the snacks and they might work, but if not, well you can get a wagon or pet stroller. They love to ride.

    I would love this! However, I am afraid the hubby would not be seen with us if that was the situation!

    They sure can be stubborn little buggers. Otis goes for walks but they are not very far and his little wiggle butt is moving quickly on the way back...lol
