So I am having some problems walking Shadow. I thought that after a couple weeks of having him (we adopted him a little over a month ago) that this would go away but every time we go for a walk he gets very excited and walks just fine until we get just past our cul-de-sac and then he freezes. He will either sit or lie down and won’t budge. The only way to get him going is to either start jogging (and I am so out of shape! J ) and he will run with me but jump up at me and try to run towards home, or I actually have to pick him up and walk a little with him. He is about 30lbs. golden retriever/chow mix so it’s really getting exhausting for me. As soon as we go towards home he is running full force dragging me home! He seems to do better when my kids walk with us, but it is hard for all of us to normally go because I take him at 6am and then after dinner and the kids are getting ready for bed. I am seriously worn out from trying to drag him on these walks. Has anyone else experienced this? It seems like he is nervous and thinks I am taking him away from his home, but that is not the case. Any words of advice would be greatly appreciated!
