Dog suddenly refuses to walk

Dog suddenly refuses to walk and keeps digging paws into his leg

I have a 13 week old GSD who is suddenly refusing to walk.

He also refuses to sit still or even come to my side when I ask him.

He has been acting this way since this morning when I took him out for the first time.

He usually walks to the back door with me, even if I'm not ready.

But this morning, it took about 5 minutes for him to walk. He was dragging his paw on the floor.

I took him in the house, fed him, let him out and he has been at it ever since.

I am wondering if he's just having an adjustment problem, and if I should bring him back out to the patio to work with him on it.

He has been on leash in a fenced area for a couple of months now.

But, if he won't walk at all today, he won't be going outside on leash, and he's too big to let off leash inside.

Also, he has started digging his paws into his leg while trying to get his balance.

I am wondering if this has anything to do with his not wanting to walk?

I have had this same problem, it's hard for me to take my dog off leash.

The problem is not that your dog is stubborn or that he will not sit still, its that he does not have the necessary skills to do so. He has no concept of a walk.

The only way to fix this problem is to do lots of trning. It may take months, or maybe years, but your dog must be trned to walk and sit still. You need to make your dog walk, even if he does not want to, then when he does he will walk correctly. The reason is that it will not be a part of his thinking. You will have to do that every day.

You need to get yourself in front of the right people, a trner with lots of dogs, a teacher of obedience classes and a good vet. Ask for advice and for their advice to take him to a trner. He needs to work with your dog at a rate of one walk per day. If he is working with you you will need to work at a faster rate.

I will have to tell you that this is a long term problem. Your dog needs to be trned to walk correctly and be able to do so. But to work around this problem you need to get some help.

When your dog wants to go he is going to be able to do so, when he does not want to go he will not go. He just needs the trning.

I would not bring him back outside for the time being, it will make him more anxious and that will just make him dig in his paws even more. I would keep an eye on him in case he starts hurting himself. It is better to have him be comfortable and safe at home than outside.

Thanks for the reply. I am definitely going to get some trning done for him.

I've tried to take him to my trning classes (I think that's what it's called) a couple times but he always ended up just not wanting to go in.

And, when he's at home he's really good with most commands and just not walking.

I really appreciate your comments. I am not a huge fan of walking him on leash, but I think he will start out with some walking trning. I will give it a shot.

I was just wondering if this is the same thing my friend's dog is doing. His dog will try to run as soon as you let him out of the house. And if you just take your eyes off of him, he will run. He will also jump on the porch when he's out.

I hope he starts out with some trning to help him learn. I know when I was a pup, I needed to be walked. I am hoping that I can get him into some kind of trning so that he'll start walking on his own.

It sounds like a "walking" issue. If you have a fenced in yard, you can just use a doorbell and ring it every time he starts walking. If you don't have a fenced in yard, you will have to go outside and take him with you.

I have had this problem a few times with my puppy. I ended up taking him to a trning class and working on it. Once I figured it out he would walk on a leash for the first time. He is a bit older now and I think he has pretty much figured it out. I had to do lots of trning though, just like you sd. Good luck!

What do you mean by "if you end up taking him to a trning class"? That's what I was thinking. It's hard for me to take my dog to a class, but it would be nice to have it help him understand how to walk.

I've had this problem before. If your dog is really stubborn about walking, it's hard to get him to actually walk when you're ready for him to. You might have to be prepared to put him on a long leash or let him off leash, depending on your location. This is why people with a fenced in yard are a godsend. If your dog won't walk at all, you have a little more work to do.

This is really sad, because your dog is missing out on so much. There are
