Yapping and whinging while out for walks
Just wondering if anyone else has this trouble. Charlie is really good at walking on the lead (no pulling etc) but if he sees something or someone he starts yapping as if he wants to say hello & cant understand why not everyone wants to stop. He will settle down when he greets a person or a dog but will get upset if they dont want to say hello.
I just dont know how to stop him doing it. If you stop walking or tell him to sit he just gets louder!!
Any ideas on how to train him to be quiet on walks. He was fine as a puppy, he did well in training classes but this trouble has started since he was nutured at the age of 1 really. As i am watching his weight I dont really want to click and treat. Just wondering if anyone has any ideas.
