|Hazel is 16 weeks now and is around 5lbs. I have been unsuccessful in getting her used to going outside, because it has been so flipping cold! Well it is finally getting to be in the 40's and I have begun to start her leash training, and have not been very successful.
First off Hazel HATES wearing anything on her body, she runs when she sees her sweater, harness, or leash. I have had a collar on her since I brought her home, but when I take it off of her, she runs when I try to put it back on.
Well when I finally get her geared up (sweater, harness, and leash) and take her outside she just stands there. She may sniff the ground or stare at everything, but she barely moves. When I attempt to walk and put any strain on the leash she pulls against me and refuses to move. Which would not be too big of a deal but we have been working on this for a couple weeks now, with hardly any progress.
Has anyone had a similar situation, or can offer any advice? I love to go for walks, and would be really sad that my dog does not enjoy them with me
