Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Yuki has taken again to being reluctant to walk very far with me. Sometimes she hesitates at our gate, sometimes further along and it takes a lot of persuasion and encouragement and 'no, we're not going back' on my part to get her to move on. Once she gets to a certain point she's fine and walks like she's on a mission, but it is exhausting getting her to that point. The annoying thing is that when either of my two sons here walk her she shows no hesitation and happily walks with them from the word go. She is currently in kennels as one of my sons is on vacation and I'm hoping when she returns she'll have settled down again and won't be giving me bother. I am reluctant to use treats as she walks with my sons with no hesitation.

Have you had one of your sons go on the walk with you and Yuki? As in you take Yuki for a walk like normal and he just tags along quietly and see what happens. Or visa versa? You just go on a walk with him and Yuki and see how it goes and what he's doing. At this point I'm wondering if you aren't projecting dread for a certain spot in the walk because you know that's the spot she has issues and you are naturally tensing up for the fight and it's actually triggering it. Or if he just walks so fast Yuki doesn't get the chance to hesitate.

I would not hesitate to give treats. You may never figure out why Yuki isn't walking for you, but you can redirect whatever that reason is by using something more motivating.

Cut up pieces of hot dog. They don't need to be big pieces (and you don't want to end up adding too many extra calories to his diet). I cut a hot dog in half- lengthwise- and then half again. Then chop those strips into small 1/4" "treats".

"Lead" Yuki by the nose with a treat in your hand held in front of his nose. Reward him by letting him have the treat when he moves- even if he just moves an inch.
