12 Week Old Australian Shepherd Won’t Walk And Is Terrified Of Everything Outside
My 12 week old Aussie is perfect, however, I can’t get him to walk outside, he won’t even respond to treats. I will carry him off the front porch to the potty area and praise, praise, praise. He immediately jerks at the leash and runs for the front porch.
I have tried carrying him to areas where he cannot see the front porch and he either curls up in a ball or tries frantically to run to a hiding spot, specifically under cars or through neighbors gates.
Should I be carrying him? Should I pull on his leash to get him to walk? Please help.
