Hi Wendy, I understand what you're going through, my male Bulldozer doesn't like to walk more than 5 or 10 minutes, so he will walk so far and then he plops down and flays all 4 of his legs to the side and refuses to walk. I usually have to go behind him and pick up his butt so he'll start walking again. I also have to keep him on the sidewalk, because if he gets to the grass, he's done. Lol. I started to carry a few pieces of kibble in my pocket to bribe him to walk and it usually works, maybe you could try this to coax Bella to follow you. Good luck. These babies can be so stubborn, they sometimes will do what they want, and ignore you.
