    Baby steps for the walking. Wilson never liked to walk when he was younger (he's 1.5 now) and it was always always a struggle getting him to move 3 feet. I would face him and walk backwards and encourage treats. Patience was the hardest thing for me to keep with him as I would get so frustrated as I just wanted a dog that would walk. I think I talked like a child to him for months and months. One time last summer we were camping and I took him for walk around the campsite and then he refused to go anywhere. He wanted to see and smell what he wanted to see and smell and he would have nothing to do with me and the leash. What did I do, well I got mad, that sure didn't accomplish anything except my blood pressure running sky high. I used to joke that it would take 20 minutes to walk to the mailbox that's a 45 second walk.

    Well at the end of the summer season last year I went to take him for another walk when all of a sudden he acted like he was a race horse coming out of the starting gate. He trotted for .8 of a mile - I was STUNNED. He's been great ever sense that time for walks but still likes to take him time and stop and smell the roses.

    So guess what I'm saying is some like to walk and others will take a long time. Just have patience and one day you'll be rewarded.

    I agree with what Jeannie says: persistence and patience is key. Both Tate and Finn were exactly the same way--would hardly want to budge at the beginning of our walks when they were younger. I started thinking I would never be able to walk my dogs like "normal" folks! With time, things have changed greatly. I notice when I take them to different places for a walk, they get more excited, so I try to do that every now and then (whether it's a hiking trail or a park or just a different neighborhood). Now I can walk both of them together or I take them out individually. You will get there with Cappu!

    My suggestion, throw him in the car and take him somewhere else. New sights and smells may inspire him to enjoy the journey more. Bea walks like a turtle 99% of the time in her own neighborhood but when we go somewhere new, she's all skippity doo dah and eager to go go go. Then my challenge is managing them both because Bo ALSO gets super exuberant when visiting a new place. They have opposite energies; it's a challenge. But remember, we don't get the dog we want, we get the dog we need! Perhaps your journey is to learn patience?

    Time Patience and Consistency is always the perfect combo!! My little male Diesel has weak hips so walks are difficult for him but we started out slow, made the journey fun and over time he was able to go further and actually enjoyed himself, now he really looks forward to walks ... I guess walking next to Molly helps too, they are super cute on walks they walk side by side and just trot along like two peas in a pod

    Mocha is the same way. If I say "lets go for a little walk" She runs under the dinning room table. If I say lets go bye bye in the car ,I better get out of the way because is flash gordon out the door and in the car!!!!! But as the others suggested they love to walk in unfamiliar places!! Mocha loves to walk downtown!!!

    Hi, yup must be a guy thing lol my Dozer hates to walk, he will go for about 10 mins , then all of a sudden just stops, lays on the ground, sprawls all 4 legs to his sides, and refuses to walk. He looks at me as if to say okay I'm done, please carry me home, which was fine when he was a baby , but now he is 9 months old, and weighs 35 lbs. he's too heavy to carry now. His sister on the other hand will walk for an hour or more, she has so much energy, and loves to walk, to run, and she jumps pretty high too. She even has a wiggle to her bum when she walks , we call it her happy trot. Lol. Dozer just wants to sleep all the time, and his sister Blossom will bite his ears and jump on him, she just wants to play all the time.

    Here is some pics of my 2 guys:

    I have a similar dynamic here, @Vikinggirl. Bo loves to walk -- and so do I -- but Bea plods along, sniffing every rock and leaf possible and putting on the breaks whenever she feels like it. I take them together and separately too, depending on which dogs needs what.

    The lucky LUCKY thing for us is that we have a dog for every "occasion" really. In the mood for a vigorous jaunt? Bo's my guy. Feel like grabbing the binoculars and sitting quietly by a pond for some bird watching? Bea is my best companion for that. We have the best of both worlds!
