    Default Walking?

    Hey Everyone, its me again! I need some advice from the experts. Winston apparently hates going for walks. He will go outside do his business and then wants to go inside immediately he will just plop on the ground and not move, like a 30 pound anchor lol! Does this happen to anyone else? Do you have any tips on how to get him motivated to want to walk? I know its important for him to get exercise! Thanks in advance for the help!

    Ruckus does that sometimes too. I think he just wants to sunbathe lol!! That's the stubbornness of a bully, if he's not going where he wants, he's just not going. I use a clicker and treats w/ Ruckus which works well.

    Maybe if you can get him interested in playing first..then move on to a walk! Throw a ball..tug a war..whatever perks his interest! One thing a friend of mine does..she takes her Bully in the car to a different place..like a park or explore our downtown area..seems her Waylon gets "bored" but he new places!

    We don't have that problem but Ive heard others say that bribing them along with treats works... Don't know personally.

    Brooke likes walks...but I don't. I get bored. haha So we do a lot more playing. She LOVES to play keep away from me and my boyfriend with a ball outside. She sprints around like a crazy woman. Definately gets her plenty of exercise, she is totally pooped when we come in and usually grabs a drink and immediately plops on the couch for hours.

    Thank you all for the advice!! I will try to get him excited before we go for a walk! He does love new places, it seems if he gets somewhere he hasnt been before he loves to find out whats there, so I might try bringing him to places he hasnt been before, thanks again!

    Bruin usually won't get up to go out and lilly usually won't get up to come in (if the sun is out) I have to actually pick her up in order to get her to her feet (I have to do this a few times) Food doesn't really work for either of them

    No help here, my boys and Miila are the opposite. Get very crazy when we walk since we dont do it often.

    Sorry I can't be any help either. Tubs likes to go for walks and gets excited to the point that he doesn't know how to pace himself!

    Sorry, don't have any answers for ya. Mine like to go for leisurely walks. Every once in a while they pull a number on me and decide they don't want to move. You know...like a mule or donkey who's decided it ain't going any further. I just pull out my handy iPhone and start using my Tapatalk app. Once they realize I'm not going to push it, they start walking again. It's boring watching mommy on her iPhone. Heehee

    Tate didn't enjoy his walks when he was younger so I had to bribe him with treats. This is sort of what I learned in the puppy class we took at P.Smart...load them up with treats (click and treat, we used a clicker) just before you start walking so that he will associate walking with yummy treats! He's much better now with the walks and i hardly have to bribe him. Make sure the treats are delicious ones that Winston likes though; i used hotdogs and bologna and cheese for Tate.
