Hi all

13 week old cockapoo an absolute dream however walking?!??
Charlie will walk on a lead with all the family, my wife, son and I no problem but when it’s only 1 or 2 of us he downs tools and roots to the spot.
Is it normal? I’ve tried the praise and rubbing with and without treats but unless it’s all 4 of us - no walk!
I know he’s still only a baby.

Perfectly normal for a baby - find a spot where you can sit on a bench and watch the world go by so he can get used to it with no pressure to walk. Sit and watch traffic and just let him develop his confidence and he will soon be walking fine.

My puppy was frightened to walk also. Around 7 months he finally became confident and started to love his walks. 13 weeks is just a baby. Everything is new and scary and he doesn’t feel safe.
