    Default Going for walks!

    Angus doesn't like to go for walks!! ...I usually take him out in the morning, but once he goes to the bathroom he won't walk!! He just sits there and keeps looking back wanting to go home! He's a stubborn . At night he does a little better, but have to pull and tug until he finally decides to walk. Does anyone have a similar problem? How much walking is recommended for a bully?? I just want him to walk on his own one time a day without having to stop and pull on him.

    Maybe take along a favorite toy or treat to motivate him to keep moving? Boy he looks stubborn, that looks like a mad face...but he sure is cute too!

    jameson is the worst!!! he goes out and he pulls where he wants to go to the bathroom...but i make him go to the dog walk. then he either stands there and looks around or i start to walk and he does the stop and pull because he wants to just sit there. he is horrible...he wants to wait to see if any dogs come out to see him...i have to shove treats in my pocket to get him to walk at all. then occassionally we have a day where he just walks and walks and walks and then he doesnt' want to stop. i can't win

    I take treats but I only give him some when he goes to the bathroom. I guess I'm going to start giving him some more to motivate him. He's also extremely nosy!! He has to stop every time some one walks by and every time he hears a noise.

    Do you know anybody with a dog that Angus could walk with? Maybe if he had a good example he could do it?

    I walk Roxy and Abby together. Problem is, as soon as Abby is finished she thinks we need to go home. She doesn't care that Roxy hasn't even gotten started yet lol Abby is pulling towards home, Roxy is pulling toward down the street... I'm stuck in the middle.

    One day when she was trying to bully us I picked up a stick and scratched it on the sidewalk. The sound caught her attention and jumped on it. She carried that stick for our whole walk. I guess the moral of that little story is that distraction really works well.

    @MamaAndi yes he has a pug as a walking partner only on Sundays! He seems to do ok, but he seems to be more into the human walking the dog lol.

    Gunny used to like to walk but not anymore we have 3 acres and he will take his time and follow me out in the pasture, then he will find a tree to sit under and just look around I sure wish I could read his mind.

    Could Angus have tender feet? Maybe try walking at a park, on grass to see if he is more interested, and yes, having a buddy to walk with may keep him moving. My boys both love their walk.

    I was just talking to my mom about this. I am scared to take Coop for a walk because if he decides he has had enough I don't think I wold be able to carry his big butt back home!

    Bea likes to walk now - but as a puppy it was a struggle. Treats, a squeaky toy worked. What really motivates her is chasing a long branch. She's got an insane prey drive so when I need to get her somewhere fast, I find something to drag in front of her.

    Bo loves to walk so taking the two of them together, is a daily challenge but I do it. The walk is my daily opportunity to show leadership.
