I've just joined the website, but I've been reading it for a couple of weeks now, and it's amazing how much I've learned through this forum!
So, my Dexter - a gorgeous black and tan puppy Cavalier - is now 12 weeks old and is so lovely (it's amazing how much he LOVES people). He can sit, down, kiss, touch, pee and poop on command, come when called and even lets me brush him - when I lure him with a treat, of course Still can't get him to stay though... will work on that when his attention spam is a little better.
My concern with him is... we've been out for a walk now 3 times and he refuses to walk outside. He cries the entire time and jumps up on my legs... I've taken him to very quiet places the first couple of times, and today I tried a very open space, but I can't get him to enjoy the walk (we only walk for 5 to 10 min, since he's still a baby). Will he grow out of it? Should I not be concerned?
I've trained him to walk on a leash inside the house first, so I know the problem is not going on a leash.. because he's used to it. The problem is outside. He seems to hate it, and is not curious at all about the world. I thought every puppy would be, maybe I am wrong?
Can someone please help me with this matter?
Thanks so much!
