First I want to thank everyone for your input regarding Layla’s urinating issue. But let’s move on now to my next dilemma with her. Behind my home(townhouse) I have a big open field about 2 plus acres or so. I was taking her out there daily to let her have her excersize. Throwing a ball or just letting her off her leash where she would run back and forth happy to have the freedom and open space to frolic in. Than one day I took her out unleashed her and she made a beeline right back to the house. I thought this peculiar but didn’t really think much about it. However, since that day I’ve tried several times to take her out there. She pulls away tail between her legs She sits totally refusing to go. I’ve tried a ball, treats my grandkids but she is not having it. Obviously unbeknownst to me something frightened her. It’s been months and she still won’t go. There are cats, and several other types of small creatures out there. None even half her size. How can I gently get her over this fear. It’s a great place for her to get her daily exercise and very convenient for me.
